16. Issues/problems For rice cultivation, it was mainly the water control that hindered the effect of the project. Most of targeted areas don’t have operational irrigation and drainage schemes that allow them plant rice correctly. The construction/ rehabilitation of those systems were planned to be funded by other donors through Food for work activities but they were not implemented. For the other crops, no specific major issues were noticed.
