ICLEI Publications

ICLEI serves as an information clearinghouse on local sustainable development by producing newsletters, regional updates on activities, case studies, training guides and fact sheets. We also provide a variety of policy and practice manuals on topics ranging from financing energy efficiency projects to solid waste management to the use of municipal economic instruments to increase environmental performance.

Below are selected publications from our archive. To explore more publications, please visit our Virtual Library.
