The UB Post - - POLITICS -

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.
