Khuvsgul Lake National Park (KLNP) in Khuvsgul aimag supports a rapidly expanding but uncontrolled tourism industry, and a small local population which is poor, receives few benefits from tourism, and is dependent on subsistence use of natural resources. The proposed grant will support local livelihoods through improved capacity for sustainable tourism and subsistence activities, in participation with the park administration and other key stakeholders. The project design adopts an integrated approach for livelihoods, tourism, waste management, and land use planning, and will serve as a model for other protected areas in Mongolia.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at: http://www.adb.org/site/accountability-mechanism/main
