Roads can be seen intersecting drought-affected farming areas located in south-eastern Australia March 21, 2015. A report titled 'Thirsty Country: Climate change and drought in Australia' by the Australian research body the Climate Council, has argued in its latest paper that the probability of drought will increase, and it will become more severe, because of climate change. The crowdfunded body claimed that since the mid-1990s rainfall in southeast Australia had declined between 15 and 20 per cent, and due to a warming climate, rain across southern Australia had "shifted" further south increasing the risk of drought in south-east and south-west Australia.

The ruins of a sunken town which had remained underwater since 1969 have re-emerged, as parts of Brazil grapple with the country's worst drought in 80 years. The Jaguari River in Sao Paulo is 30 metres below its normal level, revealing the old structures of the former town of Igarata, including the church, its main street, a square, parts of old benches and a cross. The town was submerged in 1969, the period in which plants began to be constructed to generate energy for the Vale do Paraiba region and the Cantareira reservoir, which recently fell to seven percent of its capacity, passing the "dead-level" in which the water must be pumped.

Placard is seen on the cracked ground of the Itaim dam in Itu
A placard is seen on the cracked ground of the Itaim dam as the eight-month rationing of water continues as a result of a record drought, in Itu October 28, 2014. The worst drought in 80 years has left the Cantareira system, that provides greater Sao Paulo with most of its water, with the lowest water level on record, with daily rationing becoming common in the region's smaller cities, according to the state authorities. The placard reads "Danger, risk of drowning" REUTERS/Nacho Doce (BRAZIL - Tags: DISASTER ENVIRONMENT SOCIETY)

Farmer Maria Jose, 63, cuts cactus to burn before feeding it to her goats in the absence of green pasture, in the town of Uaua, in the part of Bahia State declared to be in a drought emergency, January 16, 2013. Brazil's northeast is suffering its worst drought in decades, threatening hydro-power supplies in an area prone to blackouts and potentially slowing economic growth in one of the country's emerging agricultural frontiers. Lack of rain has hurt corn and cotton crops, left cattle and goats to starve to death in dry pastures and wiped some 30 percent off sugar cane production in the region responsible for 10 percent of Brazil's cane output.
