Ulaanbaatar/MONTSAME/. On September 23, the UN in Mongolia
team, representing nine resident agencies, planted trees on Mt Bayanzurkh,
northeast of Ulaanbaatar city, committing to plant 2500 trees on a hectare this

This is a continuation of the UN Mongolia’s efforts to
contribute to the reforestation and rehabilitation of the degraded forest,
which started last year in dedication to the commemoration of the 60th
anniversary of Mongolia’s membership in the UN.

While planting more trees, the UN staff have also watered
and nurtured the trees that were planted last year, taking great delight to see
them growing well and maturing.

With this commitment and collective action to the
rehabilitation of degraded forests, the UN in Mongolia is proud to contribute
to the noble movement of planting up to one billion trees nationwide, backed by
the President of Mongolia.
