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.
