Adaptation Actions

1 - 20 of 31
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
150 - Provide awareness on the importance of water catchment areas for water quality
151 - Establish protected areas over sensitive water catchments
152 - Reforest and rehabilitate forests within sensitive watershed and catchment areas
153 - Place and enforce buffer zones around streams and water sources
163 - Utilize appropriate building materials for livestock enclosres that can withstand climtic extremes
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)
