Water management in the Gobi

The research team of the Great Gobi B and the Khovd University jointly monitor the rivers, streams, springs, and oases in the Dzungarian Gobi, mapping the location of water points and determining the water quality.

The main goal is to identify the water points which are essential for wildlife and local people. The team fences the polluted springs for protection, develops water management policies based on research, and trains rangers in water management activities.

The project is financed by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) in Mongolia, ITG, and the Great Gobi B management.
