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). A training program is under development; please contact us if you are interested in Flood Green Guide training.
