NFPUG’s sustainable management of grazing land in Mongolia, has been selected as example of best practices in food security by Expo Milano 2015 among selected from more than 740 proposals entered in an international competition organised by Expo Milano 2015.

NFPUG’s and Green Gold’s project was selected by EXPO Milano in particular for its ability to develop a model for the sustainable management of limited natural resources, and it’s been showcased as example of best practices in food security in the Pavilion Zero at the main entrance of EXPO Milano.

Selected projects were required to have an innovative approach. The evaluators assessed the social impact of the projects on issues such as gender, employment, cultural heritage, local economic development, conflict resolution and integration. Projects also needed to address the sound use of natural resources.

The results of the projects for the improvement of food security had to be demonstrable and transferable in other contexts.
