The Joint XXIV International Grassland Congress (IGC) and International Rangeland Congress (IRC) 2020 – The Joint XXIV IGC – XI IRC congresses will be held in Nairobi, Kenya, October 25 – 30, 2020. The theme of the Congress is “Sustainable Use of Grassland/Rangeland Resources for Improved Livelihoods’. The aim of the congress will be to promote the interchange of scientific and technical information on all aspects of grasslands and rangelands: including grassland/rangeland ecology; forage production and utilization; livestock production systems; wildlife, tourism and multi-facets of grassland/rangeland; drought management and climate change in rangelands; pastoralism, social, gender and policy issues and capacity building, extension and governance. We look forward to seeing you in Nairobi in 2020.

The International Grassland Congress promotes interchange of information on all aspects of natural and cultivated grasslands and forage crops for the benefit of mankind, including sustained development, food production and the maintenance of biodiversity.

IGC and IRC jointly supported a Terminology Committee to ensure a clear international communication regarding grazing lands and grazing animals. 'An International Terminology for Grazing Lands and Grazing Animals' has been published recently. With the financial collaboration of the Forage and Grassland Foundation, IGC and IRC, a free access to the document has been made possible at Wiley Online Library: Translations from the original English version are available as 'Supporting Information'
