FAO TECHNICAL COOPERATION PROGRAMME INPUT SUPPLY TO VULNERABLE POPULATION IN MONGOLA UNDER ISFP


The TCP was implemented in response to immediate needs of the small vegetable and potato producers affected by the soaring food and agricultural input price, upon the official request of the government of Mongolia to participate in the ISFP (May 2008). As a result, the TCP/MON/3202 project provided 600 tons of seed potatoes, 500 kg carrot seeds, 400 kg beet yellow seeds, 150 kg beet deep red seeds, 260 kg cucumber seeds and 100 kg of onion seeds to 9094 project beneficiaries in 11 project aimags (Selenge, Tuv, Arkhangai, Uvurkhangai, Zavkhan, Khuvsgul, Dornod, Bayan-Ulgii, Khovd, Gobialtai, Bayankhongor) and 9 Ulaanbaatar districts.
The RISC was selected as an External Monitor for the project and implemented the following activities for the project:
- Facilitating overall the project implementation;
- Assessing the suitability of beneficiaries selected and recommending adjustments after the preliminary list of beneficiaries was prepared;
- Conducting a baseline survey among the beneficiaries after the final list of beneficiaries was prepared;
- Monitoring quantity and quality of seeds during their delivery to the project aimags and soums; and
- Assessing impacts of the project on beneficiary households, after harvesting completed.
