- ■演 題 Mining and local sustainability challenges in Mongolia: interdisciplinary research
- ■講演者 Dr. BYAMBAJAV Dalaibuyan
Mongolia's mining and minerals industry has been key to the nation's export earnings, but a recent
global commodities boom brought it to a new level. The nation is becoming increasingly dependent on
volatile global and regional dynamics of supply and demand of minerals. In this talk, Dr Byambajav will
discuss environmental, socio-cultural, and economic issues induced by mining activities in the South
Gobi Desert region in Mongolia, and explore opportunities and challenges for interdisciplinary research.
The talk will discuss different policy regimes, scales and dimensions of mining in Mongolia and examine
key sustainability challenges in the region ―water, traditional livelihoods, resettlement, and infrastruc-
ture, introducing insights from recent interdisciplinary research projects.
