Mongolia: Cashmere


UNDP Green Commodities Programme is supporting the Mongolia UNDP Country Office in implementing a pilot project to test the viability of a value chain business model for sustainably produced chasmere ("Sustainable Cashmere").

In June 2018, UNDP Country Office in Mongolia was awarded with funding by the Facility to implement the project "Value Chain Focused Private Equity Investment Fund", aimed at addressing the pastureland degradation while encouraging inclusive business through engagement with the private sector. The purpose of the engagement between UNDP Green Commodities Programme and UNDP CO is to work collaboratively in creating a roadmap for Sustainable Cashmere Roundtable or its alternative structure for the acceleration of corporate investment in the value chain for Sustainable Cashmere.
