On August 12th, the River Movements had its monthly meeting to discuss action items for the next month which concentrated on the implementation of law to ban mining in river basins passed by the Parliament before the Naadam (July 11). We are working to become members of the working group that includes the Government, two other Parliamentary Standing Committees, the Ministry of Environment and Travel and some other related State bodies. The working group will determine the further implementation of the law and its procedures.

From 17-22 Aug, Mr. Francesco Allegrucci, director of the Living Lakes Italy visited Mongolia with his wife. They travelled Mongolian countryside with Munkhbayar Tsetsegee, head of the Ongi river, environmental group to discuss how Living Lakes network in Italy can partner with Mongolian network of rivers and lakes.
