286 - Practice minimal tillage agriculture
287 - Utilize vetiver grasses to hold and prevent topsoil loss from gardens
288 - Utilize animal manure to counteract soil nutrient leeching in rainy times
322 - Plant pasture grass species that can withstand flood conditions (para and elephant)
323 - Plant pasture grass species that can tolerate water (papolo and beans)
324 - Plant fodder tree species in pastures that tolerate water
325 - Move bullock to less flood prone areas including hill side grazing areas, and plateaus
326 - Make advance arrangements where bullock could be moved in case of flooding in the primary pastures
327 - Remove bullock immediately from erosion-prone flooded areas
328 - Keep bullock pastures in grass at all times to hold top soils in place during floods
329 - Control the pooling of water in pasture eroded depressions to combat mosquito breeding
330 - Do not select aggressive Brahman bullock in flood prone areas, as they dig
331 - Do not select aggressive African fowl in flood prone areas, as they dig
367 - Ensure proper drainage: outflow needs direction away from infrastructures and towards a safer place
368 - Check that hand pumps are properly sealed (at top of bore hole) to prevent contamination and back leakage
369 - Fully check the performance of new systems 3 months – 1 yr after construction
370 - Build homes with cement around the base so as to prevent inundation
371 - Build homes that are raised above ground level to prevent household inundation during floods
