Grassland ecosystems on the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau (QTP) provide key ecosystem functions and services at local, regional and global levels, However, the degradation of QTP’s grassland ecosystems has challenged the researchers, resource managers, policymakers, sustainable development practitioners, and many more stakeholders to think critically about the future sustainability of the QTP’s grassland ecosystem. More concentrated and coordinated efforts and actions of restoration and protection management are required to promote the sustainable development of these critical and unique ecosystems with global importance. Within this context, we are organizing a special issue “Enhancing the ecological services of the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau’s grasslands through sustainable restoration and management in era of global change ”. We open call for papers for this special issue from the researchers worldwide to share their innovative ideas for developing theoretical foundations and practical approaches to effectively restoring and sustainably managing the QTP’s grassland ecosystems on the QTP by highlighting the following academic questions, which have been overlooked by the academic community in the past: How did climate changes and human activities change the alpine grassland health? How can we promote the sustainable development of alpine grazing systems? How can we cope with grassland degradation and climate change at the same time?
