UN Highlights Link Between Desertification and Climate Change

March 18th, 2010

Global warming can cause severe weather patterns to occur more frequently, increasing degradation of drylands. Desertification and climate can initiate a vicious cycle, where loss of vegetation due to desertification reduces carbon sinks and increases emissions from biodegrading plants, likewise, more emissions will be released into the atmosphere, intensifying climate change and desertification.
