As the next wave of heat is hitting Europe, Drought are being declared all over and we are feeling the impact , directly through TUB's (AKA hosepipe bans) or indirectly like potential winter food shortages To understand how a drought can cause food shortages we need to an analogy as falling row of dominoes. Now imagine if the first domino might be farmers’ corn crops dying. The second domino might be that the farmers would not have money to buy a new tractor from the dealer in town. The dealer would then lose money, which would be the third domino. If enough farmers lose their corn crops, the dealership might not be able to employ as many people or may even have to close down—the fourth domino. The dealership closing would cause many more impacts in the community. The farmers’ crops dying would be the “direct” impact of drought. The dealer losing money and all of the other impacts would be the “indirect” impacts of drought.
