Place: Tibet, China
Description: Rangeland occupies just over half (6.7 billion ha) of the earth8217;s land surface and more than 60% of the Hindu Kush-Himalayan region. The rangelands in the Himalayan region are fragile and sensitive to climate change and improper management. Sustainable management of rangeland resources is paramount both to sustain local populations and to maintain the various ecosystem services that the rangelands provide. The primary use of the rangelands in the Hindu Kush-Himalayan region is for grazing livestock 8211; since animals form the basis of people8217;s livelihoods in the high mountains
