The new millennium has started with a series of large-area droughts which have had grim consequences for the affected countries and regions. The enormous impacts of the 2000 and 2001 droughts were experienced on both physical and psychological levels, in part because no large-scale drought occurred in 1999. In some regions, severe drought continued for two years in a row.
