hellobali Guide to Bali - - A-Z OF BALINESE TRADITIONAL CULTURE -

ONE OF THE MOST an­cient

con­tin­u­ously op­er­at­ing demo­cratic sys­tems in the world, the subak reg­u­lates the sup­ply of wa­ter for wet rice ir­ri­ga­tion via a com­plex net­work of canals

and aque­ducts from the moun­tain lakes to the sea. Match­ing com­pu­ta­tional and or­gan­i­sa­tional prow­ess with

in­tri­cate agri­cul­tural and en­vi­ron­men­tal knowl­edge and col­lec­tive will, the subak is truly one of the is­land’s

great­est won­ders.
