Difficulties and shortcomings encountered in implementing the project during this reporting period
1. With the onset of monsoon and incessant rainfall, the farm roads to the Gewog centres were very difficult and risky to travel. In some stretches, road formations were washed away. The Trongsa trip had to be cancelled because of continuous road blocks along the Trongsa-Zhemgang Highway.
2. Scattered Villages
For Lumang Gewog, Trashigang, it was not a setback as all the villages are connected with feeder roads. However in the villages of Zhemgang; all the villages are scattered. Travelling from one village to another itself is a big challenge. Most of these villages do not have a motor able road.
