Manuals, primers and toolkits

  • UNIDO Cleaner Production Toolkit  (English/Spanish):
    A complete package of reading and training materials and practical tools for training of Cleaner Production auditors and undertaking Cleaner Production assessments in companies.

  • CP-EE Manual: guidelines for the Integration of Cleaner Production and Energy Efficiency: provides a methodology for integration-useful to managers and technical staff alike-coupled with a set of 'tools' that CP-EE practitioners can use directly in the field.

  • Energy Efficiency in Asia: internet resource for achieving greenhouse gas emission reductions through energy efficiency and cleaner production, illustrated with examples and practical tools from five sectors (chemical, metallurgical, cement, ceramics and pulp and paper) in nine Asian countries (Bangladesh, China, India, Indonesia, Mongolia, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Vietnam)

  • How to Establish and Operate a Cleaner Production Centre: 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.

Programme publications

  • Independent Evaluation of the UNIDO – UNEP Cleaner Production Programme: detailed report of the independent evaluation of the NCPC programme conducted in 2007-2008. The evaluation was based on review of programme strategy and management, self-evaluation by all NCPC directors and independent in country reviews in 18 programme countries. The programme’s performance in fostering the uptake of CP methods, policies and techniques was evaluated against key evaluation criteria including: relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, sustainability, ownership and capacity development. Its integrated set of conclusions and recommendations focused on identifying complementary leverage points for developing and achieving the greater potential of the joint programme and the emerging global network
