'''Drought''' is when a landscape does not receive enough [[fresh water]] (from [[rain]], [[ice melt]], or other sources). [[Water conservation]] is needed before and during a drought.  
    
Droughts have severe economic, health, and social effects due to disruption of [[crops|crop]] / [[food production]], [[drinking water]] supply, and other uses of water. Loss of plant/vegetation cover from droughts also contributes to [[soil erosion]] from wind and from water when rain does occur.
