As a result, we have reached the goal of reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 21,700 tons.” In addition, he introduced the implementation of projects based on sub-centers within the framework of the decentralization of Ulaanbaatar city and providing housing to ger areas. He emphasized that air and soil pollution in Ulaanbaatar will be significantly reduced by doing so, and expressed his readiness to cooperate in this direction.
Moreover, views were exchanged on cooperation in the project to improve flood control facilities and Ulaanbaatar Competitiveness and Regeneration Project which has the aim to create the Emeelt Eco-Industrial Park in order to decentralize, increase economic competitiveness and jobs, and produce export-oriented products.
The World Bank Country Manager for Mongolia Taehyun Lee said, "Although many works have been done to reduce air and environmental pollution, it is commendable that providing housing to ger areas is being planned comprehensively.
