Identification of Key Issues
Now that you have your list of issues, you might have observed that there are interlinkages within sectors. For instance, littering of solidwaste directly results in clogging of drains. This means that there needs to be synchronized action to address both factors. Identifying these interlinkages can help us re-formulate certain issues. The re-formulation / merging of issues will help in prioritization and will bring forward a city-wide approach.
For identifying interlinkages, Follow the below instructions
1. Open the “Citywide Issues” document and go to the “interlinkages tab”.
2. In this matrix, try to fill out any possible interlinkages between sectors.
3. These interlinkages need to be kept in mind while prioritizing issues in the future.
