Lao PDR: How a dry village got its feet wet

16 Jan 2019, IWMI

In the Laotian village of Ekxang, the IWMI developed a pilot study that allowed community members to construct and manage a groundwater irrigation system. The system was only successful in the dry season and not as popular when subsidisation was removed, indicating that future efforts must consider the socioeconomic factors that influence farmers' decisions.
