Since 2005, the SCO in Ulaanbaatar has implemented four phases of the Small Action and Culture projects. Each phase has had a specific intervention focus. To date, the SCO has supported more than 100 Small Action and Culture projects that have primarily involved identifying and testing innovative ideas and approaches that complement the domains and cross-cutting themes of cooperation strategies. Culture projects have increased Swiss-Mongolian exchanges and have promoted an appreciation of Mongolia’s cultural heritage and traditions.


Mongolia is experiencing a marked economic slowdown following the mining boom of recent years. Despite the World Bank’s labelling of Mongolia as an upper middle-income country, the business environment is unstable, there is a high dependency on mining, and economic diversification is not occurring. Poverty rate decreases to 21% in 2014, but urban poverty is on the rise. The development of the new Country Strategy and post-2020 cooperation will ensure responsiveness and relevance to contextual changes via scoping missions, studies aimed at project identification, and assessments of risk, impact, sectors and context.

Groupes cibles

For the Outlook 2020 and Culture projects, the beneficiaries are the same as those identified in CS 2013-16 for Mongolia. Specific target groups will be identified according to the actions undertaken.

Effets à moyen terme

Outlook 2020 will identify and test new areas, modalities and forms of cooperation for the strengthening of programmes in accordance with the development of the new Country Strategy and post-2020 cooperation.

The Culture Project will foster cultural and artistic diversity and encourage the creative use of art for social transformation and development in Mongolia.
