Guidance Manual

This Guidance Manual is intended not only to provide a comprehensive account of all the planning that goes into setting up a new Cleaner Production Centre, but also the broader and finer points that are necessary for successful operation of such an institution. In essence, the Guidance Manual provides a platform for capacity building for new as well as existing Cleaner Production Centres.

Training Manual

  • Instructive Presentations in the form of PowerPoint slides,
  • Key Questions capable of encouraging participation and stimulating discussion amongst participants, and
  • Three challenging case studies to be solved through group-work.

Trainers' Resources

The Resources for Trainers includes a typical training schedule, and the solutions to the case study work.
Internet Links

Over 100 internet links cover a broad range of both web sites and documents (pdf) with information on various sector and country reports, technology case studies, additional training materials, tools, finance, strategies and policies.
