51199-001: Ulaanbaatar Air Quality Improvement Program in Mongolia

Ulaanbaatar is the coldest capital city in the world. During winter temperatures can drop below -30 degrees Celcius. It is also the season when the air quality in the city drops to hazardous levels because of over-dependence in burning cheap raw-coal for heating and cooking. A marked improvement in air quality in the city is expected after a ban on the use of raw-coal was implemented by the government in Ulaanbaatar in May 2019.
