The aim is to deliver 10,000 green housing units that are energy efficient, affordable, and designed to maximize the use of renewable energy. 100 hectares of ger areas will be redeveloped into eco-districts that are both low-carbon and climate resilient as part of the project.
The objectives of the project are to (i) improve the climate resilience of Ulaanbaatar city and the adaptability of Mongolia to climate change; and (ii) reduce greenhouse gas emission and pollution, and improve the livability in Ulaanbaatar city, by transforming the highly climate-vulnerable and high polluting peri-urban areas of Ulaanbaatar (ger areas) into eco-districts characterized as low-carbon, climate resilient, and affordable.
AHURP aims to bridge current gaps in climate responsive urban development and green affordable housing by transforming the highly climate-vulnerable and heavily polluting peri-urban areas of Ulaanbaatar (ger areas) into low-carbon, climate resilient and affordable Eco-Districts. AHURP will also establish policies, mechanisms, and standards for sustainable affordable housing and green urban redevelopment. The resulting impact will be improved living conditions in Mongolia by assisting Ulaanbaatar to be a safe, healthy and green city that is resilient to climate change and provides a liveable environment for its residents.
