The rangeland resources of Pakistan constitute around 60 percent of the land area of Pakistan. This resource supports millions of livestock which are important for the livelihood food security and nutrition of poor rural people. Currently the resource is in a deteriorating condition and the current productivity is far less than its potential. Therefore, the information collected and available in this book will help in the management of rangeland resources. The book contains rangelan- related information from all the provinces/region of the country. This information pertains to the extent of the resource, the productivity, the prevailing trends and their contribution to local livelihoods, food security and nutrition. It also describes the key problems in sustainable management of this natural resource with clear cut recommendations for enhancing the productivity functions and services. This book, besides an in-depth review of the provincial rangeland conditions, also contains a summary of the rangeland symposium which was organized by FAO to bring common understanding and consensus on the problems and related solutions. The main beneficiary of this report will be the provincial forest departments who will build their future strategies and polices for sustainable rangeland management utilizing the data available in this report.
