Converting mineral wealth into sustainable socio-economic development is a key political and economic challenge that is confronting Mongolia today. A diverse and thriving SME sector has been recognized as a main mechanism to develop a sustainable economy and communities and to decrease the volatility and risks of mining dependent economic growth. 

The Sirolli Institute promotes a people-centred, bottom-up and community-based approach to enterprise development. The Sirolli Institute was invited by Development Solutions, a Mongolian NGO working to support business development, to present an initial workshop on Enterprise Facilitation┬«, and to discuss with local stakeholders the potential for this approach. 

The research activity included documenting the discussions between the Sirolli Institute and local partners in Ulaanbaatar and Umnugovi Aimag, undertaking brief background research into the application of other local content initiatives previously tried and currently underway, and analysing the potential for the deployment of such an approach in Mongolia. 

This project is part of CSRM's Mongolia Research Hub
