According to bank documents, one-half of Mongolia’s population lives in Ulaanbaatar, where more than 60% of residents live in the surrounding ger(peri-urban) areas, many of whom migrated to Ulaanbaatar in response to climate change-driven livelihood disruptions. Faced with extremely low winter temperatures and challenging economic conditions, these residents burn low-grade coal and rubbish in inefficient cook stoves for heating, with dire consequences for health and the environment. There is a need to improve access to affordable financing for energy efficient (EE) solutions that improve health and wellbeing without placing an undue financial burden on households.
Further, it will impact an estimated 15,278 direct beneficiaries and drive an estimated CO2 emissions reduction of 469,574 tCO2e over its 10-year lifetime, contributing to Mongolia’s 2030 targets of a 14% reduction in national GHG emissions and a 40% reduction in building heat loss.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF GREEN CLIMATE FUND
The Independent Redress Mechanism (IRM) is the independent complaint mechanism for a person or people who have been or believe they are likely to be adversely affected by a project or programme funded by the Green Climate Fund. If you submit a complaint to the IRM, it may seek to address the issues raised by facilitating a problem-solving dialogue or, if that is not possible, conducting an independent investigation into whether the GCF has complied with its environmental and social policies. The IRM is newly created and is still in the process of developing its procedures and website. More information about the IRM and how you can file a complaint is forthcoming. You can contact the IRM at firstname.lastname@example.org.
