- The Vancouver Food Strategy clearly articulates the PROCESS that was used to develop the strategy in a more detailed way than we see in other reports
- This clear articulation of process may help us to think through some of our design work including: deciding who should comprise our planning group and how this group will interface with existing efforts across the state; deciding what kind of information/data we need to generate a strategy/plan and a plan for doing so; and deciding on a process of engaging diverse stakeholders and the public
With this in mind, please focus your reading on the following excerpts (not to worry, there are LOTS of pictures in this long document)
Executive Summary (2-6)
Food Strategy Structure (10)
Reasons for Creating a Food Strategy (14)
Public Engagement and Input (15-21)
Vision and Principles (37-39)
And skim/review the rest of the document for ideas about the data used to inform the strategy (background research undertaken), as well as goals/priorities/actions that emerged from the public/stakeholder engagement process.
We'll look forward to using this example as a springboard to consider how this case study can inform our design process and network development for NH.
