Ghanaian Rainfall's Erraticism Causing Difficulty

Like any other natural phenomenon on earth, rainfall has rendered its loyal service to humankind, animals, the vegetation and other living creatures since time immemorial. The role and significance of rainfall cannot be over-emphasized. Its sole purpose is to replenish the water on the surface of the earth and underground. In recent times of climatic change, the rainfall pattern is unstable and most at time,s there is delay of the raining season. In a worse situation where there is lack of rain for a prolonged period of time, its certain consequences are extreme shortage of water for domestic and commercial activities, poor crop yield and eventually, famine.
