150 - Provide awareness on the importance of water catchment areas for water quality
151 - Establish protected areas over sensitive water catchments
152 - Reforest and rehabilitate forests within sensitive watershed and catchment areas
153 - Place and enforce buffer zones around streams and water sources
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

322 - Plant pasture grass species that can withstand flood conditions (para and elephant)
323 - Plant pasture grass species that can tolerate water (papolo and beans)
324 - Plant fodder tree species in pastures that tolerate water
325 - Move bullock to less flood prone areas including hill side grazing areas, and plateaus
326 - Make advance arrangements where bullock could be moved in case of flooding in the primary pastures
327 - Remove bullock immediately from erosion-prone flooded areas
328 - Keep bullock pastures in grass at all times to hold top soils in place during floods
329 - Control the pooling of water in pasture eroded depressions to combat mosquito breeding
330 - Do not select aggressive Brahman bullock in flood prone areas, as they dig
