Adaptation Actions

1 - 20 of 54
27 - Practice pollarding/topping to enhance for wind resistance in key species
28 - Prune and thin planted forests before a cyclone
29 - Prop young trees with braces to enhance wind resistance
30 - Establish green belts/wind breaks around and within planted forests
31 - Practice proactive management of forests (remove old, dead, diseased species that may cause damage during cyclones
32 - Selectively harvest large, cyclone-vulnerable trees and allow small trees to remain.
33 - Establish seed orchards in cyclone-resistant and secured locations
34 - Take out insurance on planted forests and forestry equipment
35 - Identify and plant dwarf fruit trees
36 - Identify and encourage plantation establishment in areas less affected by cyclones
37 - Discourage introduction of foreign tree species with low wind tolerance
38 - Plant local, endemic, long-cyclone resistant species
39 - Establish permanent sample plots to investigate the impacts of cyclones of certain forests and tree species
40 - Practice enrichment planting in cyclone/storm affected forests
41 - Develop plans and products that utilize (re use) cyclone-damaged trees and branches
163 - Utilize appropriate building materials for livestock enclosres that can withstand climtic extremes
197 - Use local knowledge on the supply from various sources throughout the year
198 - Identify nationally vulnerable areas to water shortage and target these first
199 - Develop national databases of water systems and supplies as a tool for decision making
200 - Undertake surveys of alternative water sources
