Adaptation Actions

1 - 20 of 89
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
145 - Undertake ecosystem enrichment planting
145 - Undertake ecosystem enrichment planting
146 - Identify and focus on sensitive/vulnerable ecosystems for management
163 - Utilize appropriate building materials for livestock enclosres that can withstand climtic extremes
269 - Dig drainage canals in gardens to prevent pooling and flooding in gardens
270 - Practice Mix Cropping of water-sensitive crops with species that utilize lots of water and can help control water logged soils
271 - Alley crop water-sensitive species in-between with water-intensive species
272 - Use plastic polybags to plant vegetables that are off the ground and cannot be flooded
273 - Build mounds in gardens and plant with vulnerable root crops to keep them above flood waters
274 - Plant crops in raised beds to prevent flooding or excess moisture
275 - Select well drained garden sites, including porous soils that do not hold water
276 - Plant along ridges or on gently sloping areas
277 - Avoid planting on flood plains or areas close to streams, creeks and rivers
278 - Plant water tolerant root crops like water taro and soft mud taro
279 - Find water tolerant varieties with help from regional and national research institutions
280 - Plant bananas in water-prone areas as they grow well with a high level of moisture; good productivity
