The small actions were also helpful as a flexible tool to address SDC’s past cross-cutting themes of governance, human rights and gender, as well as supporting Swiss-Mongolian cultural exchanges, which promoted the Swissness and Swiss presence in Mongolia.


Culture and Small Action Project in the Phase 4 will concentrate on funding cultural and artistic initiatives.

The Culture Project will aim to strengthen both local cultural identity and diversity, and to promote intercultural exchanges between Switzerland and Mongolia
