    Desertification has occurred with natural climatic change for thousands of years. Desertification can be difficult to define as it occurs to varying degrees and from multiple causes. Geologists found evidence of the first case of soil erosion (desertification) in the Mediterranean, dating back to the end of the Ice Age. It is because of glacier prevalence that this land became dry. 

    Poor agricultural practices by early civilizations coupled with drought conditions are said to also be responsible for desertification, particularly in Northwest Africa and in the Mediterranean.
