On Thursday May 6th an online launch event was held, bringing together key stakeholders in the domains of disability inclusion and inclusive design and urban development in Mongolia.
Assistive Technology Capacity Assessment (ATA-C) National Survey was carried out in September-October 2019 by Dr. Sunil Deepak, consultant of Italian Association Amici di Raoul Follereau (AIFO), in collaboration with Tegsh Niigem (Mongolia), with technical support of the AT2030 team of the World Health Organisation (WHO) and with funding from Global Disability Innovation (GDI) Hub, UK. This survey was the first step in the effort to improve and strengthen the Assistive Technology (AT) services in the country.
The Global Disability Innovation Hub (GDI Hub) is launching the first case study on Inclusive Infrastructure in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. GDI Hub worked with AIFO, Tegsh Niigem and Universal Progress ILC conducting research on the state of accessibility and inclusion in the built environment. This case study is part of a series of six global case studies.

The Inclusive Infrastructure sub-programme obegan in March 2020, right out the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Over three years this part of the AT2030 programme will be conducting case studies in six cities on the current state of accessibility and inclusion of the built environment in each of those places.

The purpose of the CCAs is to “capture a high-level understanding of the often-fragmented AT sector in a country or region,” helping raise awareness about AT gaps and opportunities and contributing to advocacy and policy and program development. One year after the first CCAs began, GDI Hub commissioned research into lessons learned so far and recommendations for how the tool and process might be improved in the future.
