Natural and Nature-Based Flood Management: A Green Guide

World Wildlife Fund (WWF), in partnership with the US Agency for International Development Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA), developed this guide (the "Flood Green Guide") to support communities at a local level in using natural and nature-based methods for flood risk management. An interdisciplinary global team developed the Flood Green Guide with a specific focus on advancing the development and application of natural and nature-based methods for managing flood risk.

The Flood Green Guide is based on collective experience, review and analysis of current and emerging flood management better practices, and on consultation with experts in engineering, water resource management, urban planning and policy, climate change, and community engagement and development. To develop the approach and content of the Flood Green Guide, the writing team also consulted with representatives from various communities in Asia and Latin America.
