  • Frameworks that guide data-driven decision making and related tools to guide cross-sector pathways teams as they develop and maintain data-use capacity;
  • Strategies and tools used in rural regional partnerships for sustaining cross-sector data infrastructure, technical expertise, and data-driven processes and culture; and
  • The developmental stages of cross-sector data work used to secure and sustain investment in rural cross-sector pathways.
