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
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 - Utilize appropriate building materials for livestock enclosres that can withstand climtic extremes
163 - Build special enclosures for pigs to have an appropriate balance of exposure and shelter
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
