One of the initiatives of the Grassland and Pasture Crops Group is the Country Pasture/Forage Resource Profile. This is being developed to make available on the Internet basic information about the pasture and forage resources of countries (starting with countries where there are pasture and fodder scientists who are members of one of the FAO sponsored Working Groups or where FAO has ongoing activities or projects).
In collaboration with the University of Queensland a Proforma [FR] [SP] has been developed.

Each profile provides a broad overview of relevant general, topographical, climatic and agro-ecological information with focus on livestock production systems and the pasture /forage resource and information concerning key institutions and personnel and their current research interests and selected references. Each profile has a custodian responsible for updating. Hard copies of some profiles in a special folder can be obtained from or all profiles are available on CD-Rom.

Profiles are under preparation for:
Africa: Liberia, Sierra Leone
Europe: Belgium, Bosnia and Herzigovina, Montenegro, Switzerland
Latin America and the Caribbean:
Near East:
Northern America: Canada, USA
