The framework is nicely introduced in this video, which also notes that community and economic activities have limits within the environment. During the process, different surveys yielded data on levels of health, mental health, accessibility, and access to food. This data was subsequently analyzed to understand the specific needs of the people. Affordable housing and social housing options were assessed thoroughly to provide for a good living environment. To understand the context and the issue that they try to tackle better the county has assessed the concentration of people with low income and checked the presence of other factors that reveal the level of poverty. These statistics and indicators are crucial when developing an action plan and to account for the challenges.
“It is not easy, but it is possible.”
