Orkhon river protection movement
Orkhon river protection movement Orkhon Valley Cultural Landscape (Mongolian: Орхоны хөндийн соёлын дурсгал) sprawls along the banks of the Orkhon River in Central Mongolia, some 320 km west from the capital Ulaanbaatar. It was inscribed by UNESCO in the World Heritage List as representing evolution of nomadic pastoral traditions spanning more than two millennia. (See List of World Heritage Sites in Mongolia)
Over the two of decades, intense efforts were focused on washing and prying gold from the bank of the Orkhon River Valley. I really want to decrease /stop/ immediately the river pollution in near future caused by extremely dangerous water pollution and disaster of human and animals through river. All i can do is my personal vision, public mission and goodwill. The main objectives of my participation is going to investigate major sources of water pollution, water resource policies and challenges to improve water quality in most territories of country.

Mongolia joined the World Bank and Asian Development Bank (ADB) in 1991 and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) as a country of operation in 2006. The international financial institutions (IFIs) have already disbursed more than $1.2 billion combined to projects in Mongolia. There are more than 300 mining companies operating in Mongolia. Coal, gold, and copper account for a large percentage of their mining activities. In April 2007, Mongolia’s government signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the World Bank, EBRD, and ADB on the development of the country’s mining sector. The economic difficulty and cash shortage are the biggest challenges in Mongolia right now. More and more people are trying to make a living by mining minerals and natural resources. We can’t blame or stop them since the economy is in a pinch, and unemployment has increased. Even so, we can’t destroy the nature just to provide jobs and wages. Promoting the proper use and protection of natural resources with public involvement has become our top priority. Our government’s action plan reflects increasing jobs and the need to find new income sources through the support for individuals, companies and organizations engaged in natural resource replenishment and restoration, as well as those working to improve environmental legal regulation. But there are estimated 250 mining wells are believed to be contributing to the pollution of rivers and lakes in Mongolia.
