Successful Completion of the Irrigation system to stabilize farming practice

The first priority of the MCEC was to stabilize local farming by developing a reliable irrigation system by 2015, so that local farmers of Pangling would enjoy stable irrigation of local crops year after year. The hope was that such an irrigation system would encourage local farmers to work their land to the fullest, increasing the likelihood that they keep and develop their land. This would have a stabilizing effect on the local population and minimize the break-down of local culture. Engineering and geological consultants were brought to the area in 2014 to develop a plan for the most stable irrigation system suitable for the region.

That plan was successfully implemented over the following year and completed in 2015, resulting in stabilization of water resources despite highly variable rain and flows of the Kali Gandaki river that flows through Mustang Valley.
