A Comparative Analysis of Chinese and Mongolian Grasslands

Edited by Colin G. Brown

This book unravels the complexities of the grassland systems of Mongolia and northern China, identifying the ways in which policies and incentives can be strengthened to improve grassland condition and herder livelihoods. Offering a comparative analysis of policies and incentives, chapters argue for a mix of incentives and associated policy measures to benefit both grassland conditions and herder lifestyles.

Chapter 4: Grassland environmental services

David Kemp, Li Ping, Jane Addison, Karl Behrendt, Wang Zhongwu, Han Guodong, Zhao Mengli, Uvdal Bombosuren and Hou Xiangyang

Abstract

Grasslands provide not only a range of food and fibre and other provisioning services but also a range of environmental services. This chapter identifies, and compares and contrasts the relative importance of these services in China and Mongolia. It also discusses the set of these environmental services in both countries and describes the links between the services. The link between grassland degradation and these services is also examined.
