Green Deal Going Local Handbook 

Giving local and regional authorities guidance for the green transition 

​​​​​​​​​​​The European Green Deal will be won or lost in EU cities and regions, as local and regional authorities (LRAs) are responsible on the ground.

In order to equip LRAs with the right measures and tools for its success, the European Committee of the Regions has published a Handbook that provides targeted guidance on financial aid and technical assistance in the fields of climate adaptation, renovation of buildings and biodiversity.


About ​​​the Handbook

This Handbook is a component of the Committee of the Regions' 'Green Deal Going Local' campaign that aims at supporting the implementation of the Green Deal at the local and regional levels.

As there is no 'one-size-fits all recipe' for a local and regional implementation of the Green Deal, this Handbook provides a step-by-step guidance and is adapted to ​each local context (from urban to rural, mountain and coastal areas, among others).

In a creative and interactive way, it provides information on targeted financial and technical instruments based on geographical and institutional assets and vulnerabilities. It also provides best practices that illustrate how the objectives of the European Green Deal can be implemented by local and regional policymakers.
