Ban Thad, a village in rural northeastern Thailand, experiences drought and significant economic migration during its dry season. This project recommends appropriate actions to the Population and Community Development Association for improving farmers' water access and income generating capabilities. Through community participation and semi-structured interviews, we determined that a solar-cell powered water distribution system would be socially appropriate for Ban Thad if sponsorship is provided, crop maintenance is not labor-intensive, and connection to individual fields is simple and affordable.
