Those are certainly important questions. There is some overlap with
the other groups (sustaining participation could go under either
sustainability or participation, for example), but that is always
going to be the case. I think it is worth considering this as a
separate area. At the very least, financial sustainability needs to be
considered, without that the rest of the strategy is pointless.
