  • Mexico. The worst recorded drought in Mexico’s history has severely affected millions of people.
    • The state of Guanajuato, a major grower of crops in the country has received little rainfall in the past 18 months.
    • Up to 100,000 heads of livestock have reportedly died and million more are without food.
    • More than 4 million acres of crops have been destroyed.
    • “In some parts of the country this has grown to be a bigger issue than even security,” says Alejandro Aboytes, a farmer in Guanajuato and former president of a local producers group. “It is hardest for those who must rely on the rain to grow food. They cannot grow anything, so it means they don’t eat.”
    • Food production has fallen by 40 percent across Mexico because of the severe drought, said the National Confederation of Peasants.
    • Some half dozen small towns and communities have turned into ghost towns.
    • The drought is expected to intensify.
