Grasslands cover about 40% of world's land surface. They are crucial to the livelihoods of more than one billion people, providing fibre, fuel and food. They make vital contributions to the conservation of biodiversity and to ameliorating climate change through carbon sequestration. However, they face the pressures of global population growth, challenges caused by demand for other food sources, the impact of climate change and declining funding for research.

The Proceeding of the 22nd International Grasslands Congress (15-19 Sept 2013) is a three volume set which documents the current issues facing grasslands around the world and shares the latest industry developments and solutions. The overall Congress theme is revitalising grasslands to sustain our communities.

The Congress Proceedings (Volumes 1-3) is arranged in three main streams:
1. Improving production efficiency to revitalise grasslands
2. Improving grassland environment and resources
3. Grassland people, rights, policies, practices and processes

The Congress papers are innovative, stimulating and thought-provoking. The three volume set will be of interest to new and experienced, grassland scientists, extension workers, postgraduate/undergraduate students, agri-business professionals, policy makers and leading livestock producers and farmers from all over the world.
