The Wider Image: Climate-fuelled drought forces Taiwan tea farmer in search of water
Chien Shun-yih, 28, rests after reaching the water tower he built in the middle of the forest 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.
