Assessment of green jobs opportunities, gaps and barriers in Ger and Nature tourism in Mongolia

With the support of the PAGE Green Recovery Programme in Mongolia, the “Ger and Nature” scheme proposes promoting green jobs/decent work among tourism operators and local herding communities, with individual community groups serving as hosts to cultural and adventure tourists. The “ger” in “Ger and Nature” refers to the traditional circular tent dwellings used by nomadic herders in Mongolia, and which would be used to offer hospitality to both domestic and international tourists. This report presents an assessment of green jobs potential in Mongolia and an analysis of existing policy settings for supporting green jobs, using Ger and Nature tourism as a focal point.
