This is the Concept Diagram for the Arid LID Coalition. The diagram outlines how we will accomplish our goal (green) using the strategies (yellow) that address the direct threats (pink) and the contributing factors (orange) which present a challenge to achieving our goal .
This is the Results Chain Diagram for the Arid LID Coalition. Again, it includes our goal (green) and our strategies (yellow) for achieving that goal. The other colored squares represent various types of results that we expect to see as we make progress towards our goal.
