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
285 - Use contour planting to prevent soil erosion during floods or storms
286 - Practice minimal tillage agriculture
287 - Utilize vetiver grasses to hold and prevent topsoil loss from gardens
288 - Utilize animal manure to counteract soil nutrient leeching in rainy times
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
476 - Relocate species of importance to higher grounds to avoid loss through sea water inundation
477 - Adopt coastal management or land use plans
478 - Find and encourage salt tolerant trees
