IBBY-Yamada 2016: Mongolia

Policy workshop

In Mongolia, there is no clear policy for publishing children’s books or for promoting reading among young adults, the future generation and future leaders of Mongolian society. IBBY Mongolia received funding to initiate the first ever policy workshop with key stakeholders in Mongolian society to discuss and agree on key policy and actionable direction for reading and publishing books in Mongolia. The key stakeholders will include government, the National Children’s centre, schools (primary and secondary), libraries, kindergartens, publishing houses, authors and parents.
