Climate change is among the biggest “wicked issues” in rice cultivation. From the literature, we know that wicked problems are difficult to solve owing to the extent of the interconnectedness of issues attached to them. With climate change, we know that water will be scarce for agriculture, if not already, given its competition with more urgent and important concerns such as for domestic purposes. We also know that the workforce is abandoning the agriculture sector in favor of the more established income-generating industries. The recitation of related issues can go on.
