Enhancing the resilience of human-natural systems of the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau will demand an integrated effort by scientists, development organisations and government agencies alike who recognise that human and ecological systems are interlinked, and that drivers of change include biophysical, economic, political, social and cultural elements that operate at different temporal and spatial scales. The papers presented highlight some of the complexities of these interactions, and anyone seeking sustainable solutions for resolving the complex issue of rangeland degradation on the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau, or elsewhere, should find this Special Issue interesting and relevant.
