Sustainable resource use in the Gobi Desert, Mongolia Sustainable resource use in the Mongolian Gobi Desert Survival is hard in the Mongolian Little Gobi desert where thousands of nomadic herders live hand to mouth in the barren landscape, alongside many endangered species such as the Houbara Bustard, black vulture, the Argali wild sheep, ibex and snow leopard.
Until the collapse of socialism inall Mongolians were employed by the state; now people rely heavily on natural resources, utterly dependent on the environment and their livestock of goats and camels for all their basic needs.
But despite the hardships, herders are determined to continue their unique way of life. Jargal Jamsranjav, whose grandparents were herders themselves, is training herders scientific research skills so they can help monitor wildlife populations themselves.
Since then she has spent her time helping people introduce important conservation measures, for example, how to avoid over-grazing, conserve water and manage waste more effectively. The project centres around the village of Nomgom, a focal point for some nomadic families.
At the moment, the only cash they have is in Spring when they can sell wool and cashmere. We will be helping them augment their incomes by making souvenirs such as felt embroidery, improved dairy production and so on.
Nomgom is their only link to the developed world — providing school, hospital, post office and — for a few hours a day — electricity. In other parts of Mongolia, which have been hit by very bad winters and drought, people have had to move to the city to survive.
They live on the land and know how important their environment is. They may be isolated, but Mongolians also like to feel they are part of a bigger picture.
They like knowing they have an important role to play and are proud of their involvement. With these groups, Jargal has organised regular experience sharing meetings to discuss recycling, pasture, and wildlife management, as well as other important issues such as law enforcement, eco-tourism, water resource protection, and fuel efficiency.
All of these issues relate directly to the way in which the local communities interact with and utilise the land, and their active discussion for the benefit of improved nature conservation marks a change from the protected areas management approach utilised elsewhere in Mongolia.
By discussing environmental issues directly with the people, Jargal is gaining a deeper understanding of the needs of the communities living in the Little Gobi Desert, and how closely these relate to sound environmental practice. As a result, working with the local communities, Jargal has helped to coordinate indigenous tree planting, the implementation of waste management, fencing of vulnerable wild plant bushes to protect them from grazing by domestic animals, and the training of local people in wildlife monitoring so they can assess their impact on the environment around them on which they depend.
She has also helped to produce an flora and fauna identification manual for use in the protected areas, which is helping local people to develop a more scientific understanding of their wilderness home.
