Green Recovery and Reconstruction Toolkit; Rebuilding Stronger, Safer, Environmentally Sustainable Communities after Disasters.  The World Wildlife Federation and the American Red Cross, two leading institutions in the fields of environmental conservation and humanitarian aid, developed a training toolkit to equip field staff working in humanitarian aid, government, and conservation with practical, solution-oriented techniques for integrating environmental sustainability into disaster recovery and reconstruction.

Although disasters wreak havoc, the rebuilding effort that follows represents a significant and important opportunity to rebuild communities that are more environmentally and socially sustainable than what existed before the disaster.  Humanitarian aid and conservation practitioners, government officials, local communities, and donor organizations can all take specific steps to ensure reconstructed communities are built back safer through actively addressing environmental sustainability and reducing risk and vulnerability to future disasters.
