Train vegetable farmers in Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM). 3. Assist vegetable farmers' institute community bye laws to check and ensure these dugouts are protected. 4. Assist vegetable farmers' establish vigilant groups to enforce community bye laws protecting the dugouts from being destroy.
