Adaptation Actions

1 - 20 of 46
60 - Raise/elevate river creek crossings highly
61 - Bury/lower river/creek crossings well underground
62 - If possible, have water pipes cross rivers/creeks at less vulnerable points up or down stream
63 - Use local knowledge of cyclone vulnerable areas when laying water pipes/infrastructure
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
163 - Utilize appropriate building materials for livestock enclosres that can withstand climtic extremes
285 - Use contour planting to prevent soil erosion during floods or storms
286 - Practice minimal tillage agriculture
287 - Utilize vetiver grasses to hold and prevent topsoil loss from gardens
288 - Utilize animal manure to counteract soil nutrient leeching in rainy times
294 - Introduce and encourage wet tolerant species for seasonally waterlogged or low-lying areas.
295 - Undertake vegetative propagation to encourage rapid fruiting
296 - Utilize hormones to induce fruiting and flowering out of season
297 - Store seeds for use during low fruiting periods.
298 - Assess the fruiting calendars of different species in different climatic areas
299 - Protect of trees from rainfall/elements in green houses
300 - Practice anthropogenic fertilization (by hand) in cases where Rainfallinhibits natural pollination and fertilization
