Overview and approach of the Flood Green Guide
World Wildlife Fund (WWF) in partnership with U.S. Agency for International Development Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA) has developed the Natural & Nature-Based Flood Management: A Green Guide to support local communities’ flood management efforts. Utilizing an integrated watershed approach, the Flood Green Guide was developed by an interdisciplinary team of subject matter experts from around the world.

The guide provides instruction on the use of an optimal combination of approaches including engineering, natural and nature-based methods, and nonstructural approaches (such as land use planning) to manage flood risk, while promoting environmental and social co-benefits.
