Course subject(s) 4. In troubled waters: What challenges are water systems facing?

So far we have covered how challenges can affect cities. In the next two video clips , we return to the examples of the Honghe Hani Rice Terraces and Turkey to explore challenges in rural areas.

First watch Tianchen explain how traditional labor-intensive farming and irrigation systems are not in line with the needs of modern production and economic development. She also highlights the effects of irrational crop farming, the development of modern mechanical production methods, modern water engineering, and local tourism.
