According to many years observation at the meteorological stations scatted throughout Mongolia, annual mean temperatures have risen by 2.1 degree Celsius between 1940 and 2007. Natural disasters such as drought, heavy snow fall, flood, snow and wind storms and extreme cold and hot temperature are recurrent all year round and the forecasts suggest higher temperatures and less rain in summer and more snow in winter.It also may bring more variable weather conditions with longer and/or frequent droughts and zud (or harsh winter).

Goal of the meeting was to draw attention to Mongolia which experiences direct impact of global warming and climate change.The meeting took place in sandy valley called "Gashuunii Hooloi" of Bayandalai soum of Umnugobi aimag.
