Adaptation Actions

1 - 20 of 44
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
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
137 - Introduce freshwater namarai to stagnant pools
138 - Physically move animals from drying streams to others that are running
139 - Channel water from consistent source for sensitive animals in drying pools
140 - Clean water sources of debris/obstruction to allow flow of water to drying aquatic habitats
141 - Build water storage areas (dams etc) for vulnerable species
142 - Establish protected areas/tabus to control other threats to drought stressed animals and plants
143 - Utilize green houses for enhanced/controlled fruit production
149 - practice species site selection
150 - Provide awareness on the importance of water catchment areas for water quality
