Diagnostic Analyses

INOGO embraces the wealth of valuable information about this region produced by decades of previous projects and strategic plans. The Diagnostic Analyses provided by INOGO were written to answer the question “what do we already know about the region?". The information forms a synthetic baseline for future work in the region, and perhaps can help avoid the future duplication of efforts.

The Diagnostic Analysis will consist of chapters focusing on the following subject areas:

  • Health
  • Education
  • Community Assets
  • Terrestrial Ecosystems
  • Marine Ecosystems
  • Economy
  • Organizational, Institutional, and Financial Analysis
