Droughts Human impacts

Deforestation can also cause droughts because if you remove trees on a global scale it results in less carbon dioxide being absorbed from the atmosphere which in turn will lead to an increase in the greenhouse effect
Agriculture can suffer because of drought resulting in less yields ,crop failures and loss in livestock . It can also suffer when water is taken from wet area to be used in dry ones
Dams are also a big problem when droughts ocurre because if you build a dam upstream in will stop the water from reaching the places downstream there fore making them dryer
