Around one-quarter of Mongolia's population resides on the outskirts of Ulaanbaatar, the national capital, within peri-urban communities termed ger areas characterized by limited or no access to urban infrastructure, inadequate disposal of human fecal waste, sanitation-related diseases, and increasing risks of soil and water contamination. The grant will support local livelihoods through improved household sanitation and strengthening the lifecycle for on-site (de-centralized) fecal waste management, including the collection, transport and composting of waste, in collaboration with communities, the private sector, and civil society organizations (CSOs). The project will serve as a model to scale up on-site sanitation in Mongolia and which complements infrastructure development in core urban areas.

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
