Building the Climate Change Resilience of Mongolia’s Blue Pearl—A Case Study from Khuvsgul Lake National Park
Khuvsgul Lake National Park is one of Mongolia’s most popular tourist destinations and supports global biodiversity values and is the country’s largest source of freshwater. Climate change threatens these values. Many protected areas across Asia and the Pacific are also threatened by climate change, yet few quantitative studies or applied management guidance are available for land managers.
This study presented the first quantitative assessment of climate change impacts to a protected area in Mongolia and identifies climate risks and adaptation measures for three dimensions: biodiversity, livelihoods, and tourism.
