The Practitioners Handbook series aims to support local governments, which have already identified priority sectors or materials they wish to apply circular economy principles to. The series offers sector-specific guidance to support city officers in identifying practical circular economy interventions in collaboration with stakeholders from businesses, academia, civil society, and more.
This handbook provides local governments with concrete tools their peers are using to facilitate the transition to circular food systems, from stakeholder engagement to designing effective policies. It draws on experiences from the ICLEI network and its Circular Development pathway, learnings from the ICLEI-RUAF CITYFOOD Network and best practices from the Milan Pact Awards. This publication features experiences from 50 local governments and was designed by ICLEI experts in collaboration with champion cities for the benefit of city practitioners.
