The analysis of the interaction between climate change and land grabbing shows the strong interrelation between the the phenomena. It follows that climate change can be considered in the list of the main drivers of land acquisition in poor countries, together with the global food crisis of 2007-08, the increase in population and the change in the diet. If this two last causes explain the rash of land by Asiatic countries and corporations like China and India in searching of fertile land rich in water for food production, climate change has been investigated as a determinant key drivers, with its actions and feedbacks. CC in fact, influencing investor countries, usually having a weak resilience to climate change effectes on agricultural production, provokes an inpulse in the rush of agricultural land. Furthermore geopolitical dinamics for mitigating the impacts of climate change promoted by UE or USA have exacerbated the production of biofuels and the consequent search for suitable land. Due to this reason big areas of notable ecosystemic quality (forest and savanne) are being converted in the production of biofuels, causing increasing emission of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, which is the principle driver of climate change.
