HOST: World Overview of Conservation Approaches and Technologies (WOCAT)

Rangelands are staples of human and planetary health, sustaining 20 percent of global livelihoods and providing a wealth of ecosystem services spanning from carbon sequestration and water filtration to habitat provision and biogeochemical recycling. Yet, despite occupying half of the world’s land surface and harbouring much of its biocultural diversity, they continue to receive the lowest levels of restoration funding.

This session maps out the existing and potential productivity of biodiverse rangelands, provides clear evidence for why restoring degraded rangelands should be a priority for global “One Health” approaches, and offers recommendations on how the global community can mobilize rangeland support going forwards.
