In Chile’s capital, a decade of drought makes grass a rare luxury

在智利首都 10年乾旱使綠草宛如稀有珍寶

 

【摘要2022.8.11..自由】孫宇青

In Chile’s capital Santiago, grass is becoming a rare luxury amid a decade-long drought that has forced the city to roll out emergency measures to limit water use and led local authorities and landscapers to replace lush green plants with desert flora.

在智利首都聖地牙哥,綠草正變成一種稀有珍寶,因為一場10年之久的乾旱,迫使該市實施限水等緊急措施,當局和景觀業者也被迫以沙漠花卉取代蒼翠的綠色植物。

The changing face of the city underscores how the country has to adapt to an extended period of drought.

聖地牙哥的改頭換面,凸顯這個國家如何適應乾旱長期化。

"Santiago’s landscaping is from years ago, designed for a Mediterranean climate. Now we are in a semi-desert climate," said Valentina Vega, head of green areas in the district of Providencia.

普羅維登西亞區的綠化主要官員瓦倫提娜.維加說,「聖地牙哥的景觀是在多年前參照地中海氣候進行設計的,但我們現在已是半沙漠氣候。」

In Vega’s municipality, the local government plans to transform spaces alongside roads and highways from green spaces into sustainable gardens with plants that consume little water and use drip irrigation.

在維加的行政區,當地政府計畫將道路和高速公路沿路的綠色植物,改造成耐旱的花園,栽種幾乎不用澆水及可使用滴水灌溉的植物。
