The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has examined the relationship between agriculture and climate change. The results of the study will be published in a special report (SRCCL). The report deals with the question of whether and how mankind is driving climate change through land management. The report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is intended to serve as a decision-making aid for politicians. Droughts, heat waves, floods and soil salinisation as a result of climate change threaten the food supply of the world's population.
