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.
