Adaptation Actions

1 - 20 of 23
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
236 - Use less fire prone grasses including Buffalo Grass
237 - Use steel or iron for fence posts
238 - Use living Fence posts which do not rapidly light
239 - Encourage some overgrazing during the dry season to prevent buildup of biomass and fuel
240 - Ensure that there is an appropriate number of stock in the pasture to remove potential fire fuel
319 - Practice ex situ conservation
320 - Relocate endemic and species of cultural importance to dyer/non-waterlog areas.
321 - Practice site-species matching for reforestation/rehabilitation
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
