They were supportive to the concept of TA.

During Project Implementation Farmer's organization and WUAs are expected to participate in TA activities in various stages. TA findings are expected to be regularly shared with, or presented through workshops, with other agencies such as USAID, UNDP, JICA, WB as they initated or will initiate their programs for crop diversifications.
