Environment and Disaster Management team member Jennifer Pepson Elwood explains why it’s important to rebuild after disaster with an eye toward nature.

The Green Recovery and Reconstruction: Training Toolkit for Humanitarian Aid, or GRRT, was developed based on WWF and partners’ work following the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami, to help humanitarians and governments rebuild in an environmentally responsible way after disasters.

Over the years, many groups in countries around the world, including Pakistan, Haiti, Nepal and Fiji, have used the GRRT. This video was presented at an event focused on green recovery approaches, which took place in Geneva and was co-sponsored by the United Nations Environment Programme and the Partnership for Environment and Disaster Risk Reduction.
