ACMS Speaker Series
 Better decision-making through community mapping in Mongolia

Speaker: Enkhtungalag

5:30 PM, Tuesday Feb 7th 2017, American Corner, Ulaanbaatar public library

Ulaanbaatar, capital city of Mongolia is home to almost half of the country's population, in which more than 60% live in the ger area. Centralized administrative power, rapid urbanization, economic and political instability calls for a stronger civil society with a vision for long-term, sustainable, and inclusive development. Ger Community Mapping Center sees community mapping as one of the tools to inform and empower local communities and the general public to promote participatory decision-making. Community mapping draws on the implicit knowledge within local communities on everyday issues with long-term consequences.

Co-Sponsored by the American Cultural and Information Center, Ulaanbaatar
