A WAY FORWARD TO SUSTAINABLE INTERNATIONAL FORESTRY COOPERATION: A CASE STUDY OF THE ‘GREENBELT PLANTATION PROJECT IN MONGOLIA’

The purpose of this study is to identify lessons that can be learned from a recent Official Development Assistance (ODA) project and present suggestions for improving performance in future ODA projects in the forestry sector. The study offers a mid-term assessment of an international cooperation project for the Greenbelt Plantation in Mongolia and seeks ways of improving effects and sustainability of the project in the latter half of implementation period and after completion. To ensure sustainable management of the ODA projects in the forestry sector, it is crucial to develop associated businesses which attract broad public attention in partner countries. Participation of central and local government institutions in partner countries contributes to the sustainable management of development, and effective communication between the governments encourages their active participation.
