Difficult terrain and lack of essential supplies including water, electricity, and communication have virtually derailed the National Rural Health Mission in most parts of Nagaland.

The shifting cultivation in Nagaland state is described as an agricultural system where a farming community slashes secondary forests on a predetermined location, burns the slash and cultivates the land for a limited number of years. The land is then left fallow and the farming community moves to the next location to repeat the process till they return back to the starting point.
