Adaptation Actions

1 - 20 of 67
48 - Ensure that farmers have at least one area that can be used as a ‘cyclone pasture’ (open with no nearby trees)
49 - Farmer should have or make arrangements to have access to multiple pastures/grazing sites that will each be appropriate for a different climate situations
50 - Follow storm warnings/advisories to move herd to safe locations (out of wind)
51 - Avoid fastening animals with ropes to fixed objects during cyclones
52 - Keep smaller animals inside a strong enclosure during cyclones
53 - Keep smaller animals inside a strong enclosure during cyclones
54 - Keep animals out of/ remove animals from known swampy or low lying coastal areas in preparation for a cyclone
64 - Use spring boxes around sources , to ensure nothing gets into the source itself
65 - Close down inlets to water into tanks before a storm, reopen after event
66 - Ensure there is enough water storage for use during and after the storm events
67 - Practice regular water monitoring
68 - Ensure the manhole in ferro cement tanks is fitted perfectly to avoid ash fall or other contaminants entering the tanks
69 - Do not glue in the downpipe of the tank, must be able to pull out as needed before storms
70 - Rain water tanks should use a T joint (first flush system) so that all contaminants are flushed away before water is collected
71 - Close off water sources before a cyclone events to prevent flooding, contamination, especially to crop irrigation areas
72 - Use sediment filtration boxes to purify water
73 - Use slow sand filters for the best filtration of contaminated water
74 - Design the simplement water filtration systems for Vanuatu sustainability
75 - Boil water to kill microorganisms and may also reduce this bad 'tank' taste
76 - Do not rely on a single source of water; have several backups
