Mongolia to host 2018 Asian Ministerial Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction
Central Asia | society | 10:44, 03 July 2018 | 1285

AKIPRESS.COM - The Mongolian government will host the 2018 Asian Ministerial Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction (AMCDRR) July 3-6 in Ulaanbaatar.

Co-organised with the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR), the AMCDRR aims to accelerate efforts in the region to reduce and prevent disaster losses through implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030.

Mongolia faces a range of disaster threats including earthquakes, floods, forest fires and drought. One weather-related phenomenon unique to the country is the Dzud, caused by the twin impacts of drought in the summer and severe freezing weather and storms in the winter.

One-third of Mongolia's population depends entirely on pastoral farming and the loss of pasture caused by Dzuds, leads to widespread starvation amongst livestock, devastating the herds and livelihoods of nomadic herders.
