About the Flood Green Guide & Training Program

World Wildlife Fund (WWF), in partnership with the US Agency for International Development Office of US Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA), developed the Natural & Nature-based Flood Management: A Green Guide (Flood Green Guide) to support using natural and nature-based methods for flood risk management. The Flood Green Guide is an open-source resource that is supported by training and a resource library. For more information about the Flood Green Guide, or training, contact us.

The Flood Green Guide

The Flood Green Guide provides practical guidance and tools to understand the local context related to flood risk and lead those responsible for flood management through analysis, method selection and decision making at multiple stages of a typical flood risk management project cycle. The guide is designed for those involved in flood risk management, including municipal governments, community groups, and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs).

An online version of the guide is forthcoming and a training program is under development; please contact us if you have any questions or are interested in Flood Green Guide training.
