Case Study: The Process Behind PlaNYC
ICLEI's case study contains in-depth detail about how the City of New York developed its renowned PlaNYC sustainability plan, and how this planning process laid the groundwork for New York’s emergence as a leading sustainable city.
ICLEI created this resource because other cities, towns, and counties have been eager to follow New York's lead and learn its keys to success as they strive to meet their own sustainability challenges and goals. The case study complements ICLEI's previously release Sustainability Planning Toolkit.
