While making the successful transition to democracy and market economy since 1990, Mongolia laid down the foundations for prosperity. However, that transition also brought with it increased poverty and environmental degradation. Committed to reversing this trend, the Mongolian government has set a goal to become a green civilization—meeting the needs of the present while safeguarding the planet's resources. In this lunch-hour lecture, Chuluun will discuss what green development looks like in Mongolia and the introduction of his Global Sustainability Index (GSI) tool for providing synergy in the post 2015 development agenda. This event is free and open to the public.
