About Tungalag Ulambayar

Tungalag is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Forest and Rangeland Stewardship, CSU, advised by Maria Fernandez-Gimenez. Tungalag’s project supported the outreach objectives of the Mongolian Rangelands and Resilience (MOR2) project through two outreach activities. The first was to create a nation-wide radio program targeted to the learning needs of herders and the second is to increase capacity among young Mongolian researchers to access and analyze MOR2 data. The radio program communicated MOR2 research results about the effects of collaborative management practices on formally organized community groups and their livelihoods, social relations, and pasture conditions leading to greater resilience to climate change.
