What causes desertification and the effects

Desertification is caused by is combination of factors that change over time and vary by location. The impact of desertification is loss of species, water cycle, soil erosion, and life quality. When trying to prevent desertification it requires both local management and macro policy approaches that promote sustainability of ecosystem services. A solution is to plant trees and flowers everywhere. The issue with this solution is that we would have to transport plants and trees everywhere they don't have it.

Contrary to popular perception, desertification is not the loss of land to desert or through sand-dune movement. It refers to land degradation resulting from climatic variations and human activities. It is not a natural process; it is the result of mankind's actions.
