In the interests of assessing best and promising practices of multi-sectoral collaborative, the intent of this research was to develop a suite of indicators. In keeping with the Healthy Communities and the Built Environment project, these indicators were directed specifically toward collaboratives that included in their aims improvements in public health through changes in land use planning and/or the built environment. The indicators provided a framework that was applied in the associated project on developing case studies of such collaboratives.
