Elaboration of a World Heritage Nomination

The Desert Landscapes of the Mongolian Southern Gobi are outstanding. They host an extraordinary representation of critical populations of rare animal and plant species as well as an enormous range of intact desert landforms and features. The project team supporting the Mongolian government to apply for the “Desert Landscapes of the Mongolian Southern Gobi” took an inspection trip to Great Gobi B Strictly Protected Area.

The Mongolian Government has now decided to support the nomination of the suggested landscapes. The proposal includes: Great Gobi A with Eej Khairkhan Natural Monument, the Great Gobi B with ALalg Khairchen and the Small Gobi A&B SPA, a region of more than 82’000 km2.
