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
154 - Establish site specific water guidelines for each species to ensure planting in right location
155 - Implement irrigation systems on commercial properties
156 - Irrigate individual high value individual trees, with bucket or other means
157 - Introduce desalination/distillation for irrigation in dry coastal communities
158 - Develop and expand water storage facilities/infrastructure (water tanks and reservoirs)
159 - Identify and relocate vulnerable species to wetter locations.
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
