Mongolia's grasslands chewed to the brink
For centuries, Mongolia's grasslands have been its most important resource: 97 percent of the country's territory provides herding families with an income. But there are too many animals, which has resulted in degradation of 70 percent of grazing land. Certain plant species are dying out, and animals aren't able to find enough quality food, translating into a loss of income for the herders. A grazing land management system aims to reward sustainable use and give the plants a chance to regenerate.
