Adaptation Actions

1 - 20 of 22
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
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
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
