Adaptation Actions

1 - 20 of 23
80 - User change technical designs of sources to be cyclone proofed
81 - Ensure that tank catchment roofs are securely fastened before a storm
82 - Small dams & spring boxes may be used so the source itself is not buried
83 - Adjust the design of the intake box
84 - Promote underground tanks that are not susceptible to winds
85 - Use strong ferro cement tanks that will not move in wind
86 - Do not use light plastic polytanks in cyclone exposed areas
87 - Keep water source areas cleared, cut old branches and remove possible debris to protect infrastructure
88 - Build sea walls/other barriers around exposed coastal spring sources
163 - Utilize appropriate building materials for livestock enclosres that can withstand climtic extremes
452 - Ventilate chicken enclosures (e.g. with bamboo floors)
453 - Provide Mulching or leaves inside chicken enclosures for temp cooling
454 - Ensure there is dust available that chickens can kick up for temp regulation
455 - Keep an area of small bush inside enclosures under which they can hide
456 - Cover fences, to provide shade and respite from sun
472 - Plant coastal, native, endemic and site adapted species on beaches and vulnerable coasts trees to control erosion
473 - Plant/protect wetland species including mangroves to reduce erosion
473 (a) - Erosion of coastal forest areas
474 - Encourage and assist communities to establish forested buffer zones between the coast and the village
475 - Research the potential for desalination and irrigation of coastal woodlots/plantations
