Three decades of mining destroy thousands of hectares of green land in Mongolia

In three decades, about 917 areas or about 141153.3 hectares of land in Mongolia have been affected by random mining projects. Over the past 30 years, mining activities in the country have increased at an all-time high, 

destroying thousands of hectares of green land, depleting surface and groundwater resources, and increasing Mongolia's external debt by 6.4 times (compared to 1990), and as a result, the country lost about 167678.1 hectares in 21 provinces of grazing land, which is an important part of the country's green economy and food security. Experts believe that it is necessary to activate the United Nations concept of sustainable development 2030, the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification, Reduce Land Degradation, and international projects and programs for land reclamation.
