The role of the Advisory Committee is to provide input and advice reflecting the view of key stakeholder groups and to ensure the scope of study is relevant to decision makers. Committee members may also provide data and input throughout the process, but decisions regarding content of project analyses and reports are determined by the researchers.

Thank you to this multi-faceted group for their contributions to this important study.
