The Wider Image: Indians share the stories of loved ones they lost to the pandemic
Nadeem Akhtar, a social worker, shows a picture on his phone of his sister Shabana Ahmed, 52, an architect, who died due to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), as he poses for a photograph, in New Delhi, India, September 24, 2020."What really upsets me more than the healthcare system was the behaviour of society," Akhtar said. "My sister's neighbourhood boycotted her family. There was no emotional or moral support even after her death. Society failed us." REUTERS/Danish Siddiqui SEARCH "COVID DEATHS" FOR THIS STORY.

The Wider Image: Cash for trash: Indonesia village banks on waste recycling
Indonesia's crackdown on imported foreign waste has upset the village of Bangun, where residents say they earn more money sorting through piles of garbage than growing rice in once-lush paddy fields. Overwhelmed by a spike in waste imports after China closed its doors to foreign garbage, Indonesia has tightened import rules and customs inspections, sending hundreds of tonnes of foreign waste back to their origin countries. Green groups praised the crackdown, but Bangun residents say restricting trash from countries like the United States, Canada and Australia will wipe out a key source of income.

The Wider Image: Brazil's mangroves on the front line of climate change
Fishermen like Jose da Cruz have made their living for decades hunting for crabs among Brazil's vast coastal mangrove forests, dense thickets of twisted plants in deep black mud that grow where fresh-water rivers meet the brackish Atlantic Ocean. Cruz's average daily catch is half of what it was 10 years ago. In that time, the water line has advanced 3 meters inland from where it used to be, according to Cruz. "Nature is upset. ... In Antarctica, it's melting, nature is melting," he said. "People, you have to have some awareness about what is happening. It's clear what is happening." Climate scientists lend credence to Cruz's interpretation of what he sees. Rising water levels, they say, are a sign of global warming, which also causes water temperatures to rise, killing off some marine life. Globally, scientists have warned that water temperatures are increasing far faster than expected, which drives rising sea levels. Climate change and human development are putting 1 million species, a large share of which live in marine environments, at risk of extinction, according to a report published this year. Mangroves cover 13,989 square kilometers along Brazil's coast - an area larger than the U.S. state of Maryland - and are a vital protection against climate change, according to biologist Renato de Almeida with the nearby Federal University of Reconcavo da Bahia. One acre (~0.40 ha) of the ecosystem absorbs as much or more carbon dioxide as a similar area of the Amazon rainforest, he said. REUTERS/Nacho Doce SEARCH "BRAZIL MANGROVES" FOR THIS STORY.
