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
97 - Use mulching around crops to trap moisture
98 - Use compost around crops to trap moisture

100 - Place manure on and around the stems of crops
101 - Utilize mucuna and other crops to cover and replenish soils
