Twin boys Tseveensuren and Tsendsuren, aged two and a half, are all smiles as they don their cool new sunglasses. Tseveensuren, the older of the two, gently puts his arm around his little brother’s shoulders as they pose for the camera.

Their mother Otgonsuren, 37, is a single parent who also takes care of her elderly mother. “My boys are like two peas in a pod”, she says, kissing them both on the cheek. “They like the same things and do everything together. And they’re so energetic and active, they don’t sit still for a moment!”

A new and revitalised legal base for disaster risk reduction and response has emerged in Mongolia, with the recent passage of the revised Disaster Protection Law. The new disaster law was passed by Mongolia’s Parliament, the Great Khural, and serves to strengthen Mongolia’s governance framework for disasters. It also ushers in a more contemporary approach to disaster management, moving the country from a reactive response paradigm to one which is proactive and works to prevent and reduce the risk of disasters on people, livestock and the environment.

FOREWORD

2016 marked the last year and successful conclusion of the UNFPA’s 5th Country Programme 2012-2016 for Mongolia. The successful completion of the Country Programme coincided with the closing of a decade long of support to Mongolia in achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). In particular, MDG 3: Equal rights for women and men, MDG 5: Reducing maternal mortality, and MDG 6: Combating HIV/AIDS. In 2015, Mongolia succeeded to become one of the only 9 countries that successfully met the target to reduce maternal mortality by 2/3.
