Summary

Local governments in Australia and around the world are increasingly becoming lead agencies for sustainable development. They are developing and implementing systematic approaches to provide for our long term future in terms of the health and well being of our communities and the environment which supports us. This guide has been prepared to provide local councils and the communities they represent with guidance and direction in planning and implementing a Local Agenda 21 approach. The guide is aimed at individuals and groups who want to know how to gain commitment from key decision makers to establish a Local Agenda 21 ; councils that have committed to sustainable development and need guidance on how to commence a Local Agenda 21 ; councils that have started to develop a strategy or who are actively working towards sustainable development but who need further direction, perhaps on a particular aspect of their work ; councils that are progressing well and want some further ideas. There are three sections to this guide. Section one details five 'Action Areas' devised from the experience of many local councils so far. Section two details the case studies used to illustrate a variety of approaches to Local Agenda 21. Section three provides further reading and useful contacts and references and includes a number of appendices. This guide offers practical guidance on how to develop a Local Agenda 21 framework to tackle issues of sustainable development.y regi
