Adaptation Actions

1 - 20 of 58
58 - Plant less susceptible grasses like Glycine, Signal, Guinea and Koronea grasses which may be affected by salt for 2-3 weeks after the storm, but then will recover.
59 - Plant wind breaks near pastures that are coastal, already salt tolerant species
149 - practice species site selection
160 - Plant shade trees around and within bullock and pig pastures/enclosures
161 - Keep forested/shade/reserve areas within the farm, so that during drought times, animals can be moved into these cooler naturally moist areas
162 - Bullock may be grazed in the open, but for resting should be brought into forests
163 - Build special enclosures for pigs to have an appropriate balance of exposure and shelter
163 - Utilize appropriate building materials for livestock enclosres that can withstand climtic extremes
164 - Select shady sites for pig enclosures
165 - Provide shade over the chicken fence, either with normal housing roof material or trees.
219 - Create firebreaks between bush and garden areas
220 - Remove unnecessary weeds, dead trees, dry branches and dry organic litter from gardens
221 - Relocate gardens away from fire prone areas
222 - Burn flammable grasses around gardens in the wet season to prevent excessive fuel buildup
304 - Discourage clearing of vegetation on steep slopes
304 (a) - Reforest cleared slopes with tree and grass species with well developed root systems that will control soil erosion (e.g. vetiver and namamau)
304 (b) - Forest Plantations on sloping areas should be planted in various planting rows and patters to encourage soil retention
332 - To combat foot rot on the hooves of bullock, place stones within the paddock to trim the hooves
333 - To combat foot rot on the hooves of bullock, wash the animals in the sea
334 - To treat intestinal complications when Bullock drink standing contaminated flood waters, utilize antibiotics and vaccinations
