Adaptation Actions

1 - 20 of 84
12 - Plant gardens within forest wind breaks, or plant windbreaks to protect sensitive crops (glyricidia)
13 - Avoidance of agricultural activities in the immediate coastal strip
14 - Plant leafy crops in gardens that are well sheltered from winds (e.g. valleys etc)
15 - Plant root crops in exposed areas
16 - Cut the leaves of bananas prior to a cyclone to prevent uprooting
17 - Cut the stems of manioc prior to a cyclone to prevent uprooting
18 - Introduce Dwarf Varieties of manioc that will be less susceptible to wind damage
19 - Remove yam stakes during pre cyclone preparations
20 - Utilize early harvest varieties of yam (6 months) that can be harvested before cyclone season
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
