Adaptation Actions

1 - 20 of 24
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
226 - Utilize firebreaks and windbreaks to prevent to spread of forest fires
227 - Discourage burning activities around forested areas during drought seasons
228 - Practice mix cropping/planting approach to prevent spread of fire
229 - Prescribe burning in sensitive forest areas to reduce dangerous biomass fuel buildup
230 - Regularly weed, clean and maintain woodlots
231 - Ensure that fire fighting equipment is accessible and available
232 - Train forestry stakeholders on fire management and fire fighting
233 - Plant fire resilient species (bamboo and wild thatching cane)
234 - Provide awareness to forestry stakeholders and communities on the risks of forest fires
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
