"Integrated Production Systems for Sustainable Cashmere" project
This project is a continuation of AVSF Mongolia's project implemented throughout 2017-2019 with the aim to develop a sustainable cashmere supply chain. In 2017-2019 the project supported the establishment and capacity building of herder cooperatives in seven soums of Bayankhongor aimag, and initiated the implementation of the Sustainable Cashmere Certification Scheme, creating a model for developing a sustainable cashmere supply and value chain at the herder level.
