About AVSF Mongolia
From blind market to smart market
AVSF is acting in Mongolia since 2004, initially supporting animal health and progressively shifting to sustainable livestock product value chain development. After a first successful experience in developing a yak down value chain AVSF has initiated its Sustainable Cashmere Programme in 2013, first of its kind worldwide.
AVSF promotes an integrated approach encompassing all steps of sustainable cashmere value chain development, from production to consumption, as the only way to induce systemic change. AVSF vision relies on the principles regarded as necessary drivers for a successful transition of Mongolian livestock & textile sectors towards a green economy.
