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 (FGG) is open-source and supported by training and a resource library.

Training Curriculum

The Flood Green Guide training curriculum covers a range of key topics, including flood risk analysis, climate and uncertainty assessments, formulating flood risk management objectives, method selection, community engagement, urban issues and more. The training methodology includes a combination of videos, presentations, individual and group participatory exercises, and scenarios.

A Flood Green Guide Trainer's Guide with activity duration, objective, relevant FGG stage and chapter, and materials and resources for each subsection is also available.

To obtain a copy of the FGG, or for more information on the FGG training program, curriculum, or resources, please email [email protected].
