Ghenghis Khans realm in climate-stress

Frankfurt am Main, August 5, 2010. Endless vastness underneath a blue sky and from here and there a yurt; in this way Mongolia is shown in many photos. But the impression of intact nature is deceiving: permafrost is thawing, hydrological cycles are changing and forest fires are destroying whole regions. Climate change becomes clearly noticeable in the Central Asian country. The Mongolian government wants to counteract this by utilizing targeted environmental management and external know-how. In March 2010, the Mongolian Environment Minister visited the Biodiversity and Climate Research Centre (BiK-F) in Frankfurt. At a return visit by four scientists in July 2010, a cooperation agreement has been signed.
