This analysis is meant to support the gender equality mainstreaming within the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) program in Mongolia and in particular of the Green Gold (GG) Project. The aim of this research is to investigate on the existence of possible gender gaps within herder households which are predominantly living from animal husbandry in a semi nomadic and nomadic way of life. Roles and responsibilities of men and women on different aspects of herding households such as workload for productive and reproductive activities, division of responsibilities, management and decisions regarding expenditures, and participation in community activities have been analysed. Furthermore, the role of children (sons and daughters) in herding household and their visions for the future are investigated.
