While many efforts to understand and increase sustainability and resiliency in the region exist, these efforts are often siloed. Based on the findings of a previous planning grant from the National Science Foundation, the Sustainable Regional Systems Research Networks (SRSRN) program, we have identified that pathways for sharing and accessing different types of data, information and knowledge related to sustainability, resilience and regenerative capacity are needed.
