Harness natural facilities to enjoy benefits in the dry zone

Article

As the Ayeyawady River flowing from the north to the south for a long time is a main artery of the country, it is necessary to systematically utilize it to irrigate cultivable lands located along its both banks.
Despite a dry region, more than 600,000 acres of farmlands are placed under paddy plantations and more than 2.2 million acres under other crops in Magway Region. Hence, the water from the Ayeyawady River should be supplied to farmlands.
Some parts of the Magway Region can control the current of the watercourse in the Ayeyawady River. The low head dams should be built at the sites to control the flow of water from the river in order to generate electricity while supplying water to the cultivable lands all year round as a Myanmar saying goes: there is a will, there is a way.
On the other hand, people from the Magway Region need to efficiently use solar energy. Indeed, there are some 70 rainy days on average in the region, so it is appropriate to generate electricity through solar energy with a plan to construct a ground where solar panels must be placed to absorb the sunray.
Thanks to solar energy, the electricity can be used to operate the river water pumping stations in pumping up water from the Ayeyawady River to the farmlands for the successful cultivation of crops by local growers. It is much beneficial for the local people.
Only when the functioning of irrigation and electrification is not separable in the Magway Region will both facilities contribute to each other for the development of the agriculture sector and the electric power sector while uplifting the living standard of the people.
Meanwhile, necessary dams and reservoirs should be improved with dredging silt for storing the water at the full brim to supply water to the people for agricultural and consumption purposes. Consequently, the water supply task can remedy the people to be free from the outbreak of diseases based on water and ease the impacts of climate change in the region.

The environment creates hotness and coldness, water, fire, soil and air for the lives of humans. Only when the people effectively harness these natural facilities will they enjoy benefits. Otherwise, these natural facilities will change themselves as natural disasters to harm the lives of the people.
