interrelationship between land and climate. The webpage highlights that soil
can make a difference in addressing climate change issues, and presents
information on land and climate change, land degradation and poverty, energy
security, food security, and UNCCD processes to address climate change and
soil.

In relation to the UNCCD role, it highlights the Conference of the
Parties’ adoption in 2007 of the ten-year strategic plan and framework, which
offers a platform to address the issue of climate change and soil and promotes
the “use of effective and practical approaches to sustainable land management
by seeking to enhance the livelihoods of affected populations, improve
ecosystem protection and provide global benefits through combating land
degradation, desertification and drought.” [UNCCD Land and Climate Webpage]
