A Long Road to Remedy

So why are we still working on this?

In a situation as imbalanced as a voluntary negotiation between nomadic herders and a mining giant, it is easy to assume that reaching an agreement is 90% of the battle. And indeed, many communities never achieve that kind of victory. But when agreements are this complex and comprehensive, reaching an agreement is just the beginning. There is still a long road ahead before we can talk about achieving remedy in this case.

  • Construction of Khanbogd Soum’s first animal laboratory;
  • University scholarships provided to 37 herder children;
  • 10 herder wells furnished with solar-powered pumps; and
  • 114 new compensation packages approved for households that were physically or economically displaced by the mine, totaling approximately US $945,000 in new compensation.
