Ten Countries with Lowest Average Annual Rainfall

Among the many blessings for human being by God Almighty, rainfall is another unmatchable blessing which is beneficial in most cases. Especially for the countries with rich and fertile soil, rainfall is as important for them as fuel is for a vehicle but on the other side as it is said that “Excess of everything is bad”, so same is the case with the rainfall. If it is up to a normal duration, that’s beneficial but if occur least, it could become the reason for natural disaster in the form of droughts. Keep the negative aspects apart; rainfall is indeed the much needed resource for any country in the world. Countries with massive amount of rainfall are progressing sharply in the agriculture sector as their annual agriculture output is increasing rapidly which is also paying a great contribution towards the national economy.
