This paper, Green Economy Barometer 2018: Mongolia, produced by Mongolian economic think tank the Economic Policy and Competitiveness Research Center (EPCRC), lays out the potential benefits of embracing a sustainable future for Mongolia. Committing to the green economy would end the country’s precarious dependence on the volatile boom/bust cycles of commodity-led growth. It would boost employment by 5% by 2030. Per capita GDP would be up by a third in real terms, while poverty would be cut by an additional 2%, and greenhouse gas emissions slashed by 17%. But is Mongolia ready to fulfil its potential as a future green economy champion? This report – a shortened summary of the 2018 Mongolian Green Economy Barometer, produced with the support of the Green Economy Coalition and the European Union - tracks the transition, celebrates success and identifies opportunities for action.
