Equitable Transitions GuidebookLocal tools for fair and inclusive sustainability programs
To support fair and inclusive transitions, ICLEI collaborated with cities from different world regions under the Urban Transitions Alliance project to create a methodology that allows mapping the social equity outcomes of local sustainability plans across three dimensions: access, participation and opportunity. For each dimension, tools and recommendations for action were identified, as well as indicators to monitor progress and best practices from cities of the ICLEI network to learn from. An initial version of this methodology was tested with the city of Turku as part of the Circular Turku project.
This guidebook aims to provide insights and recommendations illustrated with best practices, resources and tools for city practitioners to better understand and unpack what social equity means for sustainability programs at the local level.
