The National Human Rights Commission of Mongolia has provided the following proposals on human rights issues related to the urban planning in its 17th Annual Report on Situation of Human Rights and Freedoms in Mongolia, which was tabled to the Parliament in 2018:
- Take immediate actions in covering the loss of residents who freed their land and real estates as part of urban development programs;
- Improve legal framework in urban development that ensures the process of dismantling the property and freeing the land is conditional to provide access to living accommodation for the residents. The relevant entity and or the state organizations shall take full liability if the accommodation is not provided as per contractual obligations;
As the aforementioned issues still remain intact, the Mongolian Amnesty International, the Mongolian Bar Association as well as some law schools will be organizing the National Consultative Meeting on “Human Rights Issues and the Urban Planning” on 8 May 2019. The consultative meeting will aim to discuss around the implementation of the Commission’s above proposals submitted to the Parliament for further action, urban planning and human rights impacts of freeing the land.
