-A farmer tries to save his flooded rice seedlings in Suranenggala, Cirebon regency, West Java, on Feb. 6. The plants were submerged as a result of heavy rain and a poor local sewage system.

After being hit by drought last year, the farmers on West Java’s northern coast are now worried about floods and pest infestations. Apart from the uncertain weather, the flip-flopping regulations also make them more vulnerable to poverty.

Several rice fields in Suranenggala Kidul village of Suranenggala district, Cirebon regency looked like muddy ponds on Monday (10/2/2020). Green paddies were almost nowhere to be found.
