The community irrigation system in Ea Tan Commune, Vietnam is the first one in the PPI Compact areas of Krong Nang District and represents a significant change in the behaviour of the local farmers. Prior to the community irrigation system being put in place, farmers expected an irrigation system to be provided by the government and for water to be available free of charge. When no irrigation system was available, individual farmers would build wells to water their farms with groundwater. Over time, this placed the area’s water resilience at risk.
