Developing Country Assistance
The Bah Bolan project, located in North Sumatra Indonesia, was a major project funded equally by the Governments of Australia and Indonesia. It was undertaken within a 30,000 Ha project area and consisted of:
Irrigation and drainage
Agricultural development; and
Institutional strengthening and training,
with the primary aim to significantly increase net farm income from rice production.
