The overall aim of this handbook is 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 aims to:
+ Assist practitioners with the implementation of EIPs, covering scoping EIP interventions, awareness raising, policy support, park management models, up-scaling resource efficiency and industrial synergies / symbiosis, + performance monitoring and benchmarking, and contribution to sustainable cities.
+ Summarize the success factors which are important to consider when implementing EIP approaches.
+ Clearly outline the implementation steps of EIP development.
+ Introduce practical tools available to support the implementation of EIPs.
+ Present practical examples to illustrate lessons learned and benefits from international experiences.
+ Raise awareness of the benefits and added value of EIPs, including alignment with international priorities such as the Sustainable Development Goals, climate change mitigation and sustainable and inclusive industrial development

The key beneficiaries of this handbook are governmental institutions seeking to develop or adjust current industrial park-related policies, and private sector stakeholders who are involved in the actual development and improvement activities of eco-industrial parks.

The target audiences for this handbook are:

- Industrial park operators and management
- Industries and businesses operating in the industrial parks
- Governments and regulators responsible for the development and operation of industrial parks
- Providers of infrastructure and utility services for industrial parks
- Private sector organizations responsible for industrial land development
- Financial sector and funding agencies
- International support organizations and service providers, including National Cleaner Production Centres (NCPCs), development agencies, technical and management consultancies
- Educational institutions providing training and capacity building services

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)
