UAUA, Brazil
A portrait of farmer Hildefonso Santos, 64, hangs inside his home where he has been waiting for the past two years for rain to fall, in the town of Uaua, in the part of Bahia State declared to be in a drought emergency, January 16, 2013. Santos, who lost all of his plantation to the worst drought in 50 years, said the only reason he hasn't left the region is something his father told him years ago, that "a man must live where he is born." Brazil's northeast is suffering its worst drought in decades, threatening hydro-power supplies in an area prone to blackouts and potentially slowing economic growth in one of the country's emerging agricultural frontiers. Lack of rain has hurt corn and cotton crops, left cattle and goats to starve to death in dry pastures and wiped some 30 percent off sugar cane production in the region responsible for 10 percent of Brazil's cane output.
