Publication: Mongolia : Participatory Living Standards Assessment 2000
The Mongolia Participatory Living Standards Assessment 2000 (PLSA) was the first exercise of its kind in Mongolia to use participatory learning and action methods to broaden and deepen understanding of poverty at the national level. The PLSA was conducted by the National Statistical Office of Mongolia (NSO) with the financial and technical support of the World Bank. It forms one of the building blocks for the Government of Mongolia's evolving Poverty Reduction Strategy - both in its analysis and as part of the process of consultation and is helping to contribute to the formulation of national policies to help foster more widely shared economic growth. The PLSA documented the perspectives and priorities of community members throughout Mongolia using their own words. The conclusions that emerged from the PLSA are helping to re-orient the approach taken within the Government of Mongolia's national anti-poverty program, with the support of foreign donors and international financial institutions.
