Mission Profile: 

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, a technical advisory support mission to Mongolia scheduled for July to December 2020 could not go ahead. Instead, UN-SPIDER offered the National Emergency Management Agency of Mongolia the services of a national consultant for five months in order to facilitate the use of space-based information in disaster management. 

During this period, three capacity-building programmes were carried out with officials from various stakeholder agencies and provincial offices of the National Emergency Management Agency. The national consultant supported the strengthening of the Platform for Real-time Impact and Situation Monitoring, which was developed by the World Food Programme and the National Emergency Management Agency. The consultant also assisted the National Emergency Management Agency in becoming an authorized user of the International Charter on Space and Major Disasters. 

With a view to the provision of continued support in 2021, the National Emergency Management Agency and UN-SPIDER submitted a project proposal on a web-based integrated national disaster information system to the Resident Coordinator’s Office.

According to researchers from Peking University and the Chinese Academy of Sciences, lakes in the Mongolian Plateau are shrinking rapidly. After analysing several decades of satellite imagery, the researchers found that the total lake surface area had declined from 4,160 square kilometers in the late 1980s to 2,900 square kilometers in 2010, a decrease of 30 percent.
