Darkhan-Uul aimag is Mongolia’s third largest province with a registered population of 92,000 and an urban population in Darkhan soum of 76,400, of which an estimated 40% live in ger areas. Poverty incidence is significant at 27% citywide and 44% in ger areas, respectively. Darkhan soum is located 220 kilometers (km) north of Ulaanbaatar and 130 km south of the Russian Federation border. Darkhan enjoys favorable conditions for farming and is rich in mineral deposits. It was founded as an industrial hub in 1961, and benefits from the Trans- Mongolian rail line and an ADB-supported road that connects Ulaanbaatar with Darkhan and the Lake Baikal region. In 2012, the government identified Darkhan to become a national model city for urban sustainability and livability with a vision of becoming a “smart and green city” by 2028. By 2020, the registered population in Darkhan soum is estimated to grow to 83,000 with 75% of the population living in formalized and fully serviced residential districts. These industrial and residential developments will increase demand for urban services, including water supply and wastewater treatment.
