This Special Report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change looks into the connection between climate change and land, but also the impacts of human land use on the ecosystem. They conclude that “climate change has adversely impacted food security and terrestrial ecosystems, and contributed to desertification and land degradation in many regions.”  In turn, changes in land conditions drive global and regional climate by affecting intensity, frequency, and duration of extreme events.  Adaptation and mitigation response are proposed, as well as near-term actions.
