Commonwealth Local Government Handbook
and individual country profiles 

CLGF publishes the Commonwealth Local Government Handbook every two years in collaboration with our ministry members and publishers Publications UK. The Handbook profiles the local government systems in the countries of the Commonwealth. The most recent 2017/18 edition was launched in April 2018 with a debate on inclusive democracy and available for purchase from CLGF.

 

The PDFs of the individual country profiles can be downloaded by clicking on the country links below. The profiles are arranged alphabetically, by country. If the profiles are used for training or other purposes, please acknowledge that the information is copyright of CLGF and use the citation CLGF 2018 Commonwealth Local Government Handbook 2017/18

For this edition, we have included a ranking of the propotion of councillors that are women by latest known year.

 

Whilst we take every effort to ensure the information in the profiles is up-to-date at the time of publication, there may be some errors as well as updates since. Please send any additional information to update the profile for the next edition, to gareth.wall@clgf.org.uk
