Brazil’s extensive drought problem

South American nation Brazil’s Energy Ministry recently published a study on falling rainfall in the region. The study indicated that between September 2020 and June 2021, Brazil witnessed the lowest rainfall in over 91 years.

The drought-like situation in the Amazon rainforest and its adjoining territories is accelerated. United Nations’ World Meteorological Organization’s (WMO) study suggests that the region has witnessed the worst drought-like conditions in the last 50 years.
