The MSRM was established in 2007 by the initiatives of several people who were increasingly concerned about the loss of traditional regime of pasture management in Mongolia, a lack of government policy and legislative regulation arrangement and , most importantly, the problems of tragedy of the commons faced in pasture management and use. Furthermore pasture research worked and studies were conducted only when the fund from international donors and researches were available.
