Ulaanbaatar/MONTSAME/. On September 23, the UN in Mongolia team, representing nine resident agencies, planted trees on Mt Bayanzurkh, northeast of Ulaanbaatar city, committing to plant 2500 trees on a hectare this year.

This is a continuation of the UN Mongolia’s efforts to contribute to the reforestation and rehabilitation of the degraded forest, which started last year in dedication to the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of Mongolia’s membership in the UN.

While planting more trees, the UN staff have also watered and nurtured the trees that were planted last year, taking great delight to see them growing well and maturing.

With this commitment and collective action to the rehabilitation of degraded forests, the UN in Mongolia is proud to contribute to the noble movement of planting up to one billion trees nationwide, backed by the President of Mongolia.
