The Wider Image: Climate-fuelled drought forces Taiwan tea farmer in search of water
Chien Shun-yih, 28, checks a broken pipe connecting to a water tank, in Jiayi, Taiwan, September 7, 2021. Chien, who returned to run the family tea plantation after his father died three years ago, is now working on coping strategies for extreme weather, including having to hack deep into the undergrowth looking for pools to pipe water to their fields. "Climate is the thing we can least control in managing our tea plantation," he said "We really do rely on the sky to eat." REUTERS/Ann Wang SEARCH "TAIWAN TEA" FOR THIS STORY.
