Over the past three decades, the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) has promoted the mainstreaming of resource efficiency and cleaner production in industries and industrial parks located in developing and emerging economies, through pilot demonstrations as well as global knowledge and dissemination projects

The handbook for Eco-industrial parks aims to assist private and public sector stakeholders with the practical implementation of eco-industrial park concepts into existing industrial parks (brownfields) and new industrial parks (greenfields).

This handbook is intended to be applicable to:

• Industrial parks in various international contexts with core focus on transition and developing countries

• All development stages of industrial parks (e.g. scoping and concept planning, pre-feasibility and feasibility studies, investment decisions, design and construction, operation, redesign and optimization)

• Industrial parks with different characteristics (e.g. types of industry sectors in park, park size, level of technology development, park management model)
