July 29, 2022 | By Colin O. Jarrett | Extreme weather and climate change are causing mega-drought, extreme rainfall, deforestation and glacier melt across the Latin American and the Caribbean (LAC) region.

A joint report of the United Nations, UN and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), published on Friday further states there are far reaching repercussions for ecosystems, food and water, security, human health and poverty.

The report revealed that since the 1980s, glaciers in the tropical Andes have lost 30% or more of their area, with negative mass balance trend during the 1990 to 2020 monitoring period.

The report also warns of the impact of the drought situation in the LAC.
