Training for UN ESCAP in Mongolia

A trai­ning ses­si­on on the sub­ject of ‘Project Management and Feasibility Studies’ was con­duc­ted by Dr. Norbert Wagener for Mongolian go­vernment re­pre­sen­ta­ti­ves and exe­cu­ti­ves of the Mongolian trans­port sec­tor on December 15, 2020 on be­half of the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP).

Conducted as an on­line ses­si­on un­der COVID-19 con­di­ti­ons, the par­ti­ci­pants we­re ab­le to fol­low the lec­tu­re in English and with si­mul­ta­ne­ous Mongolian trans­la­ti­on and to pre­pa­re spe­ci­fi­cal­ly with the help of scripts, ca­se stu­dies and ex­er­ci­ses pro­vi­ded in ad­van­ce. The ses­si­on was part of the UN pro­gram ‘Strengthening Subregional Connectivity in East and North-East Asia through Effective Economic Corridor Management’.

The trai­ning do­cu­ments can be down­loa­ded he­re.

The par­ti­ci­pants paid spe­cial at­ten­ti­on to the to­pic of fea­si­bi­li­ty stu­dies. The back­ground is the pre­pa­ra­ti­on of in­fra­st­ruc­tu­re pro­jects in Mongolia. As part of the Russia-Mongolia-China eco­no­mic cor­ri­dor, a prio­ri­ty rail pro­ject is the dou­ble-track ex­pan­si­on and elec­tri­fi­ca­ti­on of the cen­tral north-south rail­way li­ne ‘Ulaan Ude-Naushki-Sukhbaatar-Ulaanbaalar-Zamiin Uud-Erlian-UlaanTsav-Janchkhuu-Beijing-Tianjin’. In the first step, a fea­si­bi­li­ty stu­dy is plan­ned for this. This rail­way li­ne will ser­ve not on­ly for tran­sit traf­fic, but abo­ve all will al­so con­nect the Mongolian eco­no­my with Russia and the Chinese port of Tianjin.
