World Bank Improved Stove Project Clears the Air in Mongolia PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 08 December 2006

Mongolia Web News, Ulaanbaatar. Within the framework of "Improved Household Stoves" project, the World Bank and Minister of Nature and Environment are aiming to create more efficient, less exhausting home heating systems that will ultimately save fuel resources like wood and provide better air quality. To introduce the project activities to the people, "New concepts to decrease air pollution" exhibition was organized. Purpose of the exhibition is to to encourage people towards activities to decrease air pollution.

 In Mongolia many people, including those in urban areas, live in the traditional nomadic dwellings called gers. With a lack of central heating systems in these in tent-like structures urban areas as in particular the capital Ulaanbaatar suffer from an increasing air pollution from all the exhausts from the household stoves. This, combined with an increasing scarcity in wood and other fuels, has caused a serious environmental threat to urban living conditions in Mongolia.

During the Stalinist purges of the 1930's almost every monastery in Mongolia was destroyed. In 1979 an atlas was published in Ulaanbaatar by Mr. Rinchen with an overview of more than 900 religious sites that used to exist in Mongolia. However a lot the information listed seems to be not accurate. A research has been initiated to get a better idea of all the buddhist buildings that once stood in Mongolia.
