USAID Mongolia Country Profile

Since its peaceful democratic transition in 1991, Mongolia’s political system now reflects the diversity of its citizens; however, its undiversified economy risks diminishing once notable economic gains. The United States has partnered with Mongolia for three decades and continues to fight diseases like COVID-19, combat climate change, promote democratic governance, foster the next generation of democratic leaders, empower women, strengthen the rule of law and encourage sustainable, private sector-led growth.

With nearly 60 percent of the population under 30 years old, Mongolia’s rising leaders play a significant role in Mongolia’s future as an independent, self-reliant democracy. USAID partners to support Mongolia’s continued democratic development, facilitate sustainable, inclusive economic growth and solidify its path to greater independence and self-reliance.


Mongolia is located between China and Russia, with approximately half of its 3.2 million people living in the capital, and the other half dispersed over an area the size of Western Europe. Expanding democratic principles across the region, USAID programs focus on empowering Mongolia’s emerging democratic leaders and boosting economic development.
