One Region Forward is committed to advancing the ideas that came out of the 1RF planning effort. To focus our ongoing movement toward a more sustainable region, we must understand where we are making strides and where challenges remain.
The One Region Forward Report Card is our first look into Buffalo Niagara’s progress on the indicators included in One Region Forward’s Regional Plan for Sustainable Development A New Way to Plan for Buffalo Niagara.
The report provides an update on the progress of 1RF’s 5 Big Ideas. Although there is no single measurement that fully captures progress in the region, these indicators gauge collective regional trends resulting from strategies and implementations enacted in the last several years. Using available data, these indicators help identify areas of success—as well as remaining challenges—in order to help focus efforts going forward.
