Practical Guide to Collaborative Project Evaluation
Purpose of the SAGE Practitioners' Guide
Our climate is changing. Storms are increasing in strength and numbers. Sea levels are rising, and days of extreme heat are increasing. It is time for communities to better manage their futures. While we cannot control the weather, municipalities and community groups can build infrastructure to be more resilient. What does this mean? A community or project that is resilient can adapt to environmental, social and economic change. Infrastructure and other resiliency moves can also serve current goals, like improving ecology, reducing greenhouse gases, equity and participation. The best projects achieve multiple goals, but only the community can decide how to weight the importance of these.
