The project “SDG-Aligned Budgeting to Transform Employment in Mongolia” aims to support increased employment and promotion of decent work in Mongolia. The Project plans to achieve its goal by conjoining two main streams of activities: i) enabling and promoting employability in Mongolia via direct interventions and policy improvements, and ii) improving the public finance management systems to absorb results-oriented, effective, and evidence-based policies and budget initiatives in employment and labor sectors.
This technical assistance project is funded by the European Union (EU) and complements the EU Direct Budget Support to Mongolia. The Project is managed by UNDP in partnership with FAO and ILO and has the following four components:
Bridging policies with budget require results-based planning and policy prioritization. Following the Law on Development Policy and Planning and its Governance, the process of developing 10-year targeted programmes has been initiative by the Government.
Under the framework of the Vision 2050, the long-term development policy of Mongolia, these medium-term development programmes are expected to be essential in shaping Mongolia’s development trajectory towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, and in translating medium-term policy outcomes into actionable plans.
With the drafting of the 7 target programmes and related capacity building, the project also aims to support the development of a Medium-term Expenditure Framework (MTEF), under the leadership of the Ministry of Finance. Mongolia has been gradually developing a MTFF since 2003. It now plans to expand the MTFF process by developing MTEF as part of a shift in planning and budget processes towards a medium-term budget perspective within a macro-fiscal framework. It also implies the adoption of a planning mechanism which comprises the allocation of budget ceilings to each sector in medium-term, the formulation of sound sector strategic and investment plans, a process to monitor budget program effectiveness, and a shift to result-based budgeting in its most comprehensive form. It is important that the MTEF exercise is fully integrated into the budget process.
