Combine Data and Human Insights

Communities and people need to be considered. There is incredible data that can and must be gathered but the human factor is also of importance. Understanding the intrinsics of the reality on the ground, or even the perceived reality, is very important. Recommendations and insights need to filter back down to the people and communities on the ground so understanding and building relationships with them are important components.
