One of the most rewarding moments of my work at the Global Green Growth Institute was co-chairing a Working Group on “Energy, Agriculture & Industry” for the development and formulation of Mongolia’s National Green Development Policy. Through close technical and policy consultation work with numerous government agencies of Mongolia and other national and international stakeholders, the flagship policy was approved in 2014 by the Parliament of Mongolia.
