The Green Recovery and Reconstruction Toolkit (GRRT) is a training program designed to increase awareness and knowledge of environmentally sustainable disaster response approaches. The GRRT is made of ten modules which are designed to be delivered in a one-day training workshop. Each GRRT module package includes a trainer’s guide; training materials for a workshop; PowerPoint slides; a technical content paper that provides background information for the training; and additional resources for further study.
The GRRT is the result of an innovative, five-year partnership of the American Red Cross and the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) formed soon after the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami to help ensure that the recovery efforts of the American Red Cross did not have unintended negative effects on the environment.
The GRRT includes the following modules:
- Module 1- Opportunities for Green Recovery and Reconstruction: An Introduction
- Module 2 – Project Design, Monitoring and Evaluation
