Adaptation Actions

1 - 20 of 56
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
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
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
163 - Utilize appropriate building materials for livestock enclosres that can withstand climtic extremes
219 - Create firebreaks between bush and garden areas
