Adaptation Actions

1 - 20 of 40
12 - Plant gardens within forest wind breaks, or plant windbreaks to protect sensitive crops (glyricidia)
13 - Avoidance of agricultural activities in the immediate coastal strip
14 - Plant leafy crops in gardens that are well sheltered from winds (e.g. valleys etc)
15 - Plant root crops in exposed areas
16 - Cut the leaves of bananas prior to a cyclone to prevent uprooting
17 - Cut the stems of manioc prior to a cyclone to prevent uprooting
18 - Introduce Dwarf Varieties of manioc that will be less susceptible to wind damage
19 - Remove yam stakes during pre cyclone preparations
20 - Utilize early harvest varieties of yam (6 months) that can be harvested before cyclone season
89 - Intercrop with valuable trees
90 - Intercrop taro with trees that will provide some sunlight penetration
91 - Intercrop kumala with banana to provide shade for kumala
92 - Intercrop trees with banana to provide shade for bananas
93 - Practice alley cropping with nutrient providing and shade producing trees like glyricidia
94 - Plant taro under green net (60-80% sunlight) shade cloth
95 - Use live staking of yam leaves, so that the live supports will provide shade to the yam plant
96 - Grow sensitive crops in protected nurseries
128 - Preserve Taro suckers in household nurseries
129 - Collect taro seeds and sow to encourage new varieties, maintain biodiversity, and find climate resistant strains.
130 - Practice Tissue Culture in research stations to preserve genetic diversity and climate resilient varieties
