Climate change in Mongolia
Riccardo Pravettoni, GRID-Arendal
from both the East and the West Taiga are
concerned about the environmental changes
that are taking place in their homeland.
They report that snow seems to take
longer to melt during springtime. Summers
seem shorter and hotter, making it more
challenging for the reindeer that prefer
cooler temperatures. Patches of snow and
ice that used to last through summer are now
disappearing in mid-July. The rivers have less
water and the soil is dryer. There are fewer
mushrooms and flies. This is supported by
the Environmental Inspector in Tsagaannuur
sum, who has also noticed decreasing water
flow in the region’s rivers.
