The majority of global environmental assessments reviewed for the gap analysis were very accessible and in many cases provided access to raw or underlying data sets. Confidence in the data was generally high, though some global assessments were concerned about the data’s lack of adequate field verification. None of the 13 global assessments reviewed had sufficient statistical information regarding pastoralism and rangelands to warrant the highest rating. Most mentioned pastoralism and rangelands only in passing or not at all.
