7 - Dry breadfruit for long term use
8 - Produce flour for long term use
9 - Collect wild tubers for consumption after cyclones
58 - Plant less susceptible grasses like Glycine, Signal, Guinea and Koronea grasses which may be affected by salt for 2-3 weeks after the storm, but then will recover.
59 - Plant wind breaks near pastures that are coastal, already salt tolerant species
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
476 - Relocate species of importance to higher grounds to avoid loss through sea water inundation
477 - Adopt coastal management or land use plans
478 - Find and encourage salt tolerant trees
