Facilitating market access for yak herders in Mongolia
In 2013 – 2016, the Green Gold program financed by Swiss Development Cooperation (SDC) aimed at promoting collective actions for sustainable rangeland management and improving herders’ access to markets and know-how. GFA, together with consortium partner GEFAK, was responsible for Component 4, i.e. the facilitation of market access by linking yak and camel herders to processing companies. The primary beneficiaries of the project were about 25,000 herders in Western Mongolia, about 25 processors and various facilitators in the market system.
