Adaptation Actions

1 - 20 of 34
1 - After a cyclone, pile tubers and fresh foods in a hole, the foods will begin to rot, but moisture will eventually drain out and the dried foods can be eaten
2 - After a cyclone, bring Fiji taro to bush kitchen, keep in a dry place, and constantly rotate so that is does not constantly lay on one side
3 - After a cyclone, build a yam shelter raised off the ground, that is cool and dry
4 - Practice fruit drying
5 - Practice preserve/jam making
6 - Dry nangai and natapoa for long term usage
7 - Dry breadfruit for long term use
8 - Produce flour for long term use
9 - Collect wild tubers for consumption after cyclones
48 - Ensure that farmers have at least one area that can be used as a ‘cyclone pasture’ (open with no nearby trees)
49 - Farmer should have or make arrangements to have access to multiple pastures/grazing sites that will each be appropriate for a different climate situations
50 - Follow storm warnings/advisories to move herd to safe locations (out of wind)

52 - Keep smaller animals inside a strong enclosure during cyclones
53 - Keep smaller animals inside a strong enclosure during cyclones
54 - Keep animals out of/ remove animals from known swampy or low lying coastal areas in preparation for a cyclone
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
64 - Use spring boxes around sources , to ensure nothing gets into the source itself
65 - Close down inlets to water into tanks before a storm, reopen after event
