Itâ€™s not just Argentina, Australia and California who faces severe droughts and heatwaves. BBC reports that China has declared a drought emergency in northern and central parts of the country. Around four million people are suffering from water shortages while almost half of China's winter crop is under threat.
"President Hu Jintao and Premier Wen Jiabao ordered all-out efforts to fight the drought, allocating 400m yuan ($58m, Â£40m) in relief assistance.
China's drought relief office called it an event "rarely seen in history".
China faces droughts and floods annually but has seen a recent increase in extreme weather conditions.
The Chinese authorities say the current drought is expected to continue as no rain has been forecast in the affected areas for at least 10 days."
The Chinese agriculture ministry says it's on red alert and tries to focus on stabilising the grain production and ensure agricultural production can continue.
