Changes to be made to temporary gathering and evacuation points during disasters
In the territory of the capital city, 192 temporary gathering places and 31 evacuation locations and sizes have been approved by the Citizens’ Representative Khural’s resolutions. However, due to the construction of buildings in those locations, changes in the administrative units of some districts, and the increase in earthquake activity, there was a requirement to re-determine the location and size of the evacuation and temporary gathering areas. Based on the these reasons and the proposal submitted by the National Emergency Management Agency, a draft resolution of the Citizens’ Representative Khural was processed to re-approve 164.6 hectares of 203 locations for temporary gathering and 1430.4 hectares of 33 evacuation locations.
