The human imprint on the planet has a major impact on the functioning of the Earth system. Because the impact on the environment is closely intertwined with population dynamics, it is important to monitor and include these in the evaluation of land degradation. This layer displays the areas of concern for population change related issues derived from the convergence of global evidence of human-environment interactions that can lead to land degradation. It reflects the dynamics of increasing number of people in a certain area.
