In frames of the project, some concrete works have been done to introduce good experiences in the national training system and in the Citizens’ Representative Khurals, to ensure collaboration of the councils, and to create a website /khural.mn/ which gives knowledge and information. In addition, a leadership training has been held for authorities of aimags and soums.
