18. Building our knowledge

Gathering evidence to make informed decisions.

Enabling evidence-based decisions for a healthy environment and liveable Sunshine Coast.

To do this the Strategy identifies the need to:

  • Report annually on organisational environmental sustainability performance to inform business improvement
  • Undertake targeted monitoring, modelling, research and other data collection
  • Develop and maintain user-friendly dashboards or interfaces to enable the provision of accessible, current and accurate data
  • Maintain and enhance partnerships and initiatives with research institutions, government and the community to grow our collective knowledge
  • Develop and trial new and emerging tools and technologies to improve knowledge, data capture and business integration.
