Rangelands cover vast areas of North America from the Canadian prairies to the desert grasslands of Mexico. They provide livelihoods and a wealth of ecosystem services that are increasingly recognized as contributing to climate solutions. It is critical to bring these messages to the global community. Designating an IYRP will provide this opportunity!
