    Description

    In the early 1990s land grant universities worked with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to develop a disaster education program to be coordinated via collaborations among U.S. state cooperative extension systems. Given that this Extension Disaster Education Network (EDEN) is funded directly and indirectly via USDA funding, and given that the Green Readiness, Response, and Recovery idea is an outgrowth of USDA Forest Service collaborations, there are numerous possibilities for green readiness, response, and recovery resources to be collaboratively developed with land grant partners and disseminated widely across the national land grant and cooperative extension networks. This chapter will describe the national EDEN network, in the context of disaster education and best practices dissemination, drawing attention to the utility of the network to widely circulate green readiness, response, and recovery materials, but more importantly, highlighting the potential to leverage the cooperative extension system's reputation as a credible and trusted source of evidence-based information towards broader understanding among U.S. citizens of the critical importance of integrating natural resources, or green infrastructure, into all phases of disaster management.
