163 - Utilize appropriate building materials for livestock enclosres that can withstand climtic extremes
236 - Use less fire prone grasses including Buffalo Grass
237 - Use steel or iron for fence posts
238 - Use living Fence posts which do not rapidly light
239 - Encourage some overgrazing during the dry season to prevent buildup of biomass and fuel
240 - Ensure that there is an appropriate number of stock in the pasture to remove potential fire fuel
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
281 - Grow wet tolerant vegetable species (e.g. Susut and cucumber and eggplant)
282 - Protect crops and germinants from excessive Rainfallin greenhouses
