80 - User change technical designs of sources to be cyclone proofed
81 - Ensure that tank catchment roofs are securely fastened before a storm
82 - Small dams & spring boxes may be used so the source itself is not buried
83 - Adjust the design of the intake box
84 - Promote underground tanks that are not susceptible to winds
85 - Use strong ferro cement tanks that will not move in wind
86 - Do not use light plastic polytanks in cyclone exposed areas
87 - Keep water source areas cleared, cut old branches and remove possible debris to protect infrastructure
88 - Build sea walls/other barriers around exposed coastal spring sources
163 - Utilize appropriate building materials for livestock enclosres that can withstand climtic extremes
195 - Apply local and imported pesticides and Insecticides
285 - Use contour planting to prevent soil erosion during floods or storms
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
