Mongolia Compact


In 2008, MCC partnered with Mongolia to implement a five-year, $284.9 million compact that invested in property rights, transportation, energy, education and health.

Country Context

Mongolia, a landlocked country in Asia is roughly the size of Western Europe. An abrupt transition to a market economy and the rapid urbanization of a population that was highly dispersed and pastoral, this compact was an opportunity to increase land security.

Energy and Environment Project

Health Project

The Health Project aimed to strengthen the national program for prevention, early diagnosis and management of non-communicable diseases and injuries (NCDIs).

North-South Road Project

The North-South Road Project aimed to alleviate Mongolia’s insufficient transportation infrastructure by constructing an all-weather road and connecting Mongolian markets to key trading partners.

Property Rights Project

The Property Rights Project aimed to improve Mongolia’s national property registration system and help poor households obtain titles to land in suburban districts.

Vocational Education (TVET) Project

The Vocational Education Project (TVET) aimed to upgrade technical education and training, increasing employment and income.
