The councilor as guardian of the environment: a training handbook for elected leadership on how to utilize environmentally sound technologies

UNEP ; UNNCHS (1999)

This handbook has been developed by the UNEP in close collaboration with the Training Section of UNCHS (Habitat). Assessments conducted by both organizations have shown that training needs of local government elected officials (councilors), or of local politicians, appear among the most urgent worldwide and, at the same time, the least attended areas of capacity-building for local development and environmental compatible urban management.
