Monsoon Extremes Likely To Increase Over India, South Asia: IPCC Report

Rainfalls, floods and droughts will also increase. Droughts will occur more because the soil will lose moisture. Due to an increase in temperature, there will be more water evaporation which will in turn decrease soil moisture and leads to droughts, R Krishnan, Executive Director, Centre for Climate Change Research (CCCR), Indian Institute of Tropical Research and one of the co-authors of the report said.
