Grazing lands in Sub-Saharan Africa and their potential role in climate change mitigation: What we do and don't know

In 2014, the USAID project ‘Grazing lands, livestock and climate resilient mitigation in Sub-Saharan Africa’ held two workshops, hosted by the Colorado State University, which brought together experts from around the world. Two reports resulted from these workshops, one an assessment of the state of the science, and the other an inventory of related activities in the region to date. In this short communication we summarize the main points of the first report – The state of the science (Milne and Williams, 2015).
