Average urban green space per person equals from 15 to 18 square meters in other countries. However, this indicator falls drastically in our case. It reaches up to only 6 square meters in urban areas of Ulaanbaatar and 0.12 square meters in “ger” district areas, according to the EBRD’s Green city Action of Ulaanbaatar city in 2017.
Therefore every initiative, partnership, and commitment to strengthening the urban green spaces in Ulaanbaatar has great importance in our daily lives. For any projects and activities delivered to positively impact a social and environmental context, multifaceted communication, public-private partnerships, and meaningful participation are crucial as financial and human resources.
