Mongolia has an extremely harsh winter climate with an eight-month heating season. Midwinter (late December and early January) daytime temperatures range between -10C to -30C, and can drop to as low as -40C at night. Ulaanbaatar, where nearly half of the population lives, is the coldest capital city in the world. There is severe winter air pollution in Ulaanbaatar. At levels two to ten times the international standards, air pollution is a major cause of serious respiratory problems among urban residents.Those especially at risk include the poor, undernourished, very young ,elderly, people with preexisting respiratory disease and people with other health diseases. An estimated 90 percent of Ulaanbaatar air pollution comes from the ger areas, which tends to include lower income households. The primary source of air pollution is from the burning of raw coal for space heating in inefficient stoves to heat poorly insulated traditional gers and small homes.
Mongolia Government would like to introduce clean cook stoves in Mongolia to reduce air pollution, Ulaanbaatar city has a over 150,000,000 ger district family.
