Much of the data within this report was collated by the CFCs data partner, the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD). Where possible, it has been verified by local experts in each issue
area. Additional information was provided by local reports and organizations. Indicators were selected and prioritized based on the following guidelines:
Indicator Characteristics:
• Perceived public interest (informed by community survey and consultations)
• Does the indicator inspire action?
• Does the indicator report on an issue or trend that individuals or communities can do something
• Does it reveal both strengths and weaknesses of the Alberni Valley?
Data Selection
• Understandability and measurability
• Ease of collection
• How current the information is and frequency of collection for future use
