Abstract

This paper describes the methodology and indicators selected in constructing a new multi-dimensional environmental vulnerability indicator for Mongolia. Most previous studies of environmental vulnerability use national level data. This study uses 16 sub-national indicators under three dimensions- economic, social and environmental- to construct MEV indicators at province (aimag) level. This analysis shows clearly that environmental vulnerability varies significantly from one province to another. Using this approach it is now possible to tailor intervention strategies to reduce vulnerability- for example in some provinces forest fires may be an issue but this is not so in others.
