Adaptation Actions

1 - 20 of 23
60 - Raise/elevate river creek crossings highly
61 - Bury/lower river/creek crossings well underground
62 - If possible, have water pipes cross rivers/creeks at less vulnerable points up or down stream
63 - Use local knowledge of cyclone vulnerable areas when laying water pipes/infrastructure
147 - Undertake artificial germination of important species (nursery)
148 - Collect and store wildings for replanting
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
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
