Rachel Karasik, Policy Associate, will present on Gulf of Mexico Ecosystem Service Logic Models & Socio-Economic Indicators (GEMS) during GOMA's Virtual Tool Cafe.

The GEMS tool supports planning around, decision-making based on, and monitoring of social and economic outcomes of coastal habitat restoration projects and programs. The target audience is any stakeholder who is actively incorporating social and economic considerations into their work or interested in doing so. The GEMS site provides search tools by project type search or metrics, as well as stakeholder engagement methods, practitioner guides, funders’ guides, an overview brief and equity brief to support multiple stages of the planning cycle.
