Sustainability Planning Toolkit
ICLEI's Sustainability Planning Toolkit, based on the model pioneered by City of New York's PlaNYC, contains comprehensive, step-by-step guidance to develop a sustainability plan for cities, towns, and counties of all sizes. It follows a proven, straightforward, and flexible process to create a successful, long-term plan that brings together environmental, economic, and social initiatives under one holistic vision to improve the livability of communities and create lasting benefits.
The toolkit is available only to ICLEI member local governments. If your municipality is not a member, learn more about the benefits of joining. There are two ways to access the toolkit: Download it to your desktop or bookmark this page and view the toolkit online.
To view the toolkit pages online instead of downloading the pdf, begin here at the Introduction and Planning Overview. The first few pages of the toolkit are visible to the public, but the remainder are members-only.
