Day 3: WED 2013 in Mongolia

Day 3 of WED 2013 in Mongolia was highlighted by the National Forum on Green Development held at the State Palace in Ulaanbaatar.  Mongolia, which has placed a moratorium on new mining concessions while looking to a more sustainable future, unveiled its new green development plans—which include a focus on renewable energy and eco-tourism.

Elsewhere in the city, other gatherings took place, including a seminar on Reindeer Husbandry and Conservation, which discussed perspectives on the state of reindeer husbandry as well as biodiversity conservation in Mongolia's northern province of Hovsgul.
