Enviroment / Droughts in Parbhani Maharashtra

As we all are well familiar with the environment, it is everything which encompasses us normally and influences our day by day lives on the earth. Everything goes under a domain, the air which we inhale each minute, the water which we use for our day by day schedule, plants, creatures and other living things, and so on around us. An environment is called healthy environment when the normal cycle goes one next to the other with no unsettling influence. Any type of disturbance in the nature’s balance affects the environment totally which ruins the human lives.

Connect with Nature

We have to strike a balance between infrastructure development, road widening works and environment.

Because of the dense greenery, whenever there is a passing cloud, we get the rains. The greenery has arrested soil erosion and improved ground water table levels greatly.

Challenge

The increasing variations in rainfall, frequent drought and heat waves along with changes in evapotranspiration tend to alter the hydrological balance. This is turn affects the ecosystem productivity.

Long-Term Impact

When we have a drought, it can affect our communities and our environment in many different ways. Everything in the environment is connected, just like everything in our communities is connected. Each different way that drought affects us is what we call an impact of drought.

Drought affects our lives in many different ways because water is such an important part of so many of our activities. We need water to live, and animals and plants do too. We need water to grow the food we eat. We also use water for many different things in our lives, like washing dishes, cooking, bathing, and swimming or river rafting. Water is also used to help make the electricity we use to run the lights in our houses and the video games you may like to play. When we don’t have enough water for these activities because of a drought, many people and many different things will be affected in many different ways.
