Mongolia Environmental Issues: There are a number of environmental issues in the country of Mongolia. The policies of the former Communist regime promoted rapid urbanization and industrial growth which had negative effects on the environment. Due to the lack of enforced environmental laws, the air in Ulaanbaatar is severely polluted from the burning of soft coal in power plants. The land issues include deforestation, overgrazing, soil erosion, and desertification. The action of converting virgin land for agricultural production has increased the erosion from wind and rain. Mining activities have also had a deleterious effect on the environment. In some areas of Mongolia there are limited natural fresh water resources.
