Adaptation Actions

1 - 20 of 33
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
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
304 (b) - Forest Plantations on sloping areas should be planted in various planting rows and patters to encourage soil retention
304 - Discourage clearing of vegetation on steep slopes
304 (a) - Reforest cleared slopes with tree and grass species with well developed root systems that will control soil erosion (e.g. vetiver and namamau)
381 - Discourage burning of grasslands or marginal vegetation that holds soil
382 - Practice contour cropping/terracing
383 - Encourage rehabilitation of bare land and areas subject to soil erosion.
384 - Utilize site capture crops to quickly revegetate bare slopes
385 - Utilize cover crops to hold soil
