Steering it Forward, Nevada, USA (2011-2012)

Regional engagement across the mining sector of Northeastern Nevada

Project Overview

The Northeastern Nevada region embarked upon on a comprehensive capacity building and engagement process to develop a cohesive strategic economic action plan in 2011. As a region, Northeastern Nevada has its own unique history, values, strengths and challenges, based on a strong mining sector. The main mining industry is gold, but this has increasingly been supported by other mining activities and energy production. The Steering it Forward project built greater economic diversity and resilience through value adding, new industries and securing more of the value chain locally. This 12 month planning process assisted the region in two major areas:

  • Development of a common future vision through a regionally developed economic plan
  • Creation of regional economic and social resilience through collaborative initiatives.
