Title: Livelihoods: GREEN RECOVERY AND RECONSTRUCTION: TRAINING TOOLKIT FOR HUMANITARIAN AID
Authors: American Red Cross, World Wide Fund For Nature
Issue Date: 2010
Abstract: The module provides information and references to help participants identify environmental issues associated with post-disaster livelihoods recovery projects. This module also provides participants with an overview of environmental management techniques designed to reduce environmental impacts and improve livelihood outcomes for people and communities recovering from disaster. Specific learning objectives for this module are as follows: 1. Explain how livelihoods, disaster recovery, risk reduction, and ecosystems are linked. 2. Identify the recurring environmental impacts of typical livelihoods interventions. 3. Understand and address solutions for sector-specific livelihoods challenges, and be able to identify sources of expertise to improve livelihoods project outcomes. The module workshop is designed for program staff planning and implementing livelihoods recovery projects with post-disaster or conflict-affected populations and communities. The range of livelihoods recovery projects is expected to be broad and varied and not simply limited to rural agriculture, aquaculture, or fishing projects. Workshop participants will include a mix of program and project officers from humanitarian, development, and environmental organizations. The target audience is emergency recovery managers who may implement cash-for-work programs, cash grants, and other early-recovery livelihoods programs, as well as, project planners involved in longer-term livelihoods recovery projects
