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. Many of the world’s cereals are grasses. 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.

This Special Issue of Crop and Pasture contains a selection of papers presented at the recent International Grasslands Congress (Sydney, Australia; 15-19 September 2013). The reviews and research articles document the current issues facing grasslands around the world and share the latest industry developments and solutions. The overall Congress theme was revitalising grasslands to sustain our communities. Key areas of debate focussed on:

  • Improving production efficiency to revitalise grasslands
  • Improving grassland environment and resources
  • Grassland people, rights, policies, practices and processes
