Ulaanbaatar Green Affordable Housing and Resilient Urban Renewal Project (AHURP)
Improving the climate resilience of the Mongolian capital Ulaanbaatar and reducing greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution by creating eco-districts.
Climate change in Mongolia periodically leads to sizable losses of livestock due to prolonged and increasingly cold winter seasons. This results in rural-urban migration to areas around Ulaanbaatar predominated by gers, or traditional Mongolian dwellings. These unplanned areas are hotspots of greenhouse emissions and air pollution, mainly due to the widespread use of coal for heating and cooking.
The creation of eco-districts in these highly climate-vulnerable and polluting ger areas will form zones which are low-carbon, climate resilient and affordable. This will be done through low-cost urban infrastructure, public facilities, and social housing units.
The project has an estimated lifespan of 40 years.
