Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

The Government of Mongolia requested for Asian Development Bank's (ADB) Knowledge and Support Technical Assistance (TA) to support the General Authority of Intellectual Property and State Registration (GAIPSR) to strengthen Mongolia's Civil Registration System (CRS). The TA is included in the Country Operations Business Plan, 2017-2019 for Mongolia. The proposed TA will improve the accessibility and quality of civil registration services in Mongolia and help establish the One Citizen One Registration program. Improving the CRS is important to the implementation of 8 of the goals and 24 targets of the Sustainable Development Goals; it is consistent with the achievement of the objectives of the Mongolia Sustainable Development Vision 2030, in particular those related to moving state services onto electronic platforms; and is consistent with the Plan of Action for 2016-2020 of the Government of Mongolia which explicitly makes the implementation of the One Citizen One Registration program an objective. The TA will improve the quality of the CRS by improving the inter-connectedness of state agencies that handle relevant information; support the ongoing move from manual to electronic systems; and by reducing discrepancies in data and improving overall data quality. This will improve the quality and timeliness of data for policymaking and take steps to equalize the access to registry services for all citizens.

Project outputs:

1. Online state civil registration including 50 most densely populated soums created.

2. System enabling electronic registration services in hospitals created.

3. Single shared database platform for all state registry information created.

4. Laws and regulations related to state civil registration effectively disseminated.

Contact Information
This section aims to support the local communities and local CSO to get to know which stakeholders are involved in a project with their roles and responsibilities. If available, there may be a complaint office for the respective bank which operates independently to receive and determine violations in policy and practice.

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:
