Project files

Purpose

The Northwest Regional Sustainable Development Partnership has taken on the task of identifying appropriate indicators for the region to accelerate and track progress towards sustainability. The purpose of this work is three fold: First, as checkpoints and measurement of progress toward a sustainable future for the region. Second, to inform the Northwest RSDP’s priorities and project investments. Third, to frame a practical conversation about sustainability using a common set of indicators.

Partners

Center for Sustainable Building Research, College of Design

Activities

The NW RSDP board, and particularly the project work group, supported by Virajita Singh and Molly Eagen with the CSBR program at the College of Design, created a framework for sustainability indicators in the region.
