101 forest user groups of Selenge, Darkhan-Uul, Bulgan, Khuvsgul and Khentii aimags have been involved in the project that has been implemented since 2015. The Ministry of Environment and Tourism and the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) are jointly implementing the project, of which aims are to improve the protection of biodiversity in forest landscapes, and developing joint forest management. The groups involved in the project are responsible for the protection of ecologically important four regions and basins of 10 rivers in the five aimags.
