What is a ‘drought’? A look at the science

Geotechnical Appraisal

Drought is the word for the situation where one person or group of people can’t obtain enough water from other people or resources for their daily needs.

It’s also called a “drought”.

It can occur when a drought or a combination of both causes the amount of water available for human needs to drop, but it can also happen when the drought is caused by climate change or natural disaster.

The National Drought Mitigation Centre (NDMC) says a drought is when there is less water available than it was before the drought, or when there’s not enough water available to meet human needs.

It has also been the worst drought since 2007, when Gee saw a similar number of droughts.””

This is the third major drought in the state, following the devastating 2016/17 drought and 2016/2017 monsoon.

It has also been the worst drought since 2007, when Gee saw a similar number of droughts.”

It is a major disaster for South Gees people and the region, affecting livelihoods and infrastructure.

The NDMC said it has also identified some of the key impacts that the drought has had on the communities in the area, including: 1.

Loss of water supply in the Gee River basin due to high water demand from the river, the diversion of groundwater resources, and the erosion of vegetation.


Loss in agricultural production due to water restrictions.


Losses in the economy due to decreased demand from crops, tourism and livestock.


Loss due to the reduction in crop productivity and increased water consumption.


Loss to tourism due to reduced tourism spending due to limited availability of water.


Loss from the reduction of water in irrigation systems.


Loss for communities affected by water restrictions and diversion.


Loss caused by decreased rainfall from the Drought Relief Fund (DRF).


Loss on the agriculture and forestry sectors.


Loss resulting from the erosion caused by groundwater contamination.


Loss and damage to the economy of the region.


Loss among the regions tourism industries.


Loss as a result of reduced tourist arrivals due to increased numbers of visitors and fewer visitors in the country, and reduced tourism to other parts of the country.


Loss because of loss of water to crops, including loss of crop productivity due to lack of water and soil erosion due to droughty conditions.


Loss that has a significant impact on the health of local communities.


Loss through reduced crop production and reduced crop yield due to drought conditions, and increased use of pesticides.


Loss amongst the regions forestry industries.

 In the latest report, the NDC said the “main effects” of the drought include: 1) A loss in the amount and quality of water for local people, who are dependent on agriculture and forests for their livelihoods; 2) Loss in the value of water used for the irrigation of crops, which is estimated at between $10 million and $30 million; 3) Loss of agricultural production in the rural areas due to insufficient water and other water resources; 4) Loss to the local tourism sector; 5) Loss due in the loss of economic activities, which includes tourism and agricultural production, and tourism spending; and 6) Loss among other regional and national economic sectors. 

It added that the main impacts of the droughcy have been experienced in Gee and the surrounding areas, but there have also been impacts on the regional tourism sector, and among the other regional industries.

It said: “This is one of the worst droughcies in the nation and its effects on the region have been devastating.

It is estimated that the losses of approximately $100 million and more to agriculture and timber industries in Gees River Basin, the impact of reduced crop productivity in the agricultural sector and loss of the value to tourism are among the main effects.

“This has had a significant negative impact on tourism spending, and in particular, in the tourism sector.

Tourism and agricultural tourism have been impacted in the last two years.

The tourism industry in GEE, particularly in the south, has been particularly impacted.

Tourism expenditure in the past year has fallen from $3.3 billion to $2.7 billion.”

There has been a significant loss in tourism spending in the regional areas as a consequence of drought conditions in the regions.

According to the National Tourism Authority, tourist expenditure fell from $6.4 billion to just $3 billion in the first six months of the year.

“In contrast, the National Capital Territory tourism sector was up by over 20 percent in the year ending December 2017, and is expected to be
