5.1.    Water scarcity & droughts (WS&D)

5.1.1.      Impacts

Impacts of water scarcity and drought can be classified as either direct or indirect. Reduced crop and forest productivity, increased fire hazard, reduced water levels, increased livestock and wildlife mortality rates, and damage to wildlife and fish habitat are a few examples of direct impacts from drought and water scarcity (Wilhite, Svoboda, and Hayes 2007). Economic losses and social disruption are examples of indirect impacts. Another classification may also be the division between economic, environmental and social impacts.
