Main objective of the MoMo Project is the development of strategies for the implementation of a sustainable IWRM concept (integrated water resource management). The model region Mongolia is characterised by water scarcity as well as dynamic changes and conflicts of water use in the water sector. IGB’s contribution has a focus on setting up an environmental monitoring, knowledge transfer into environmental agencies and river basin administrations as well as the Kharaa Yeröö River Basin Atlas.
The Atlas is written both, in Mongolian and English language, as a joint activity of IGB and its Mongolian partner IGG. The science based fundamentals of monitoring and research results of MoMo are documented and continuously updated as maps and texts for discussions with stakeholders and decision makers.
To safeguard the transferability of experiences and approaches to solutions, the "IWRM MoMo Transfer conference" has been held in Ulan Bator in autumn 2017 initiated by the BMBF. About 70 invited guests of environmental agencies, industries, international funding organisations and science from Mongolia, China, Kazakhstan and Germany discussed the follow-up activities in different workshops.
