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

401 - Do not drink ground water near bush and VIP toilets after flood conditions
402 - Do not use bush and VIP toilets in areas with undrainable clay soils
403 - Do not swim or bathe in rivers immediately following a flood event
404 - Suggest other types of toilet designs
405 - Septic tanks could be placed above ground to avoid flood contamination
406 - Develop and follow construction standards for water supply and sanitation, use of toilets in certain areas
407 - Consider toilet location in terms of nearby water sources, and also in terms of soil type, nearness to sensitive areas (coral reefs etc)
