Community of users

This section contains information that will appeal to individuals, organizations, and communities looking for ideas on how to use the CIW framework and metrics. This is where we keep all of our project-based research grant reports. The listing is alphabetical by the name of the group that contracted us. Some have asked for indicator research, some for wellbeing surveys, and some for custom applications. Where possible, and for some it is early days, we have added a section on community outcomes.
