Discussion on state humanitarian policy held
The Office of the President organized a discussion on the state's humanitarian policy on Monday at the State Palace.
Representatives from foreign embassies and international organizations in Ulaanbaatar attended the discussion to share their humanitarian policies with attendees.
Independent advisor to the President S.Purevsuren reported about the state humanitarian policy and future plans to improve the policy.
Representatives from civic organizations emphasized that humanitarian access is different from state welfare but people's perception about humanitarian activities is not realistic, and underlined the need for the state to change public preconception about humanitarian activities.
They noted that the government should create a national humanitarian fund by collecting donations from the public, which will help the country overcome challenges caused by unexpected disasters and should educate the public, especially young people, about the advantages of humanitarian activities through the media.
