GEMS Metrics Webinar: Funding


Back to top

This webinar is one of a 3-part series to share results of the Gulf of Mexico Ecosystem Service Logic Models and Socio-Economic Indicators (GEMS) project, which aims to advance standardized socio-economic metrics that encompass the broad environmental, social and economic goals of restoration success shared by many institutions across the Gulf. In a set of three webinars, we will discuss the models, metrics, protocols, and web-based tools that were developed throughout this 3-year project with input from a large group of experts and stakeholders. The webinars will all include a brief introduction to the GEMS project and then focus on one of three topics: planning, monitoring, and funding. This funding webinar (3 of 3) will illustrate how consideration of social and economic outcomes can inform design of restoration programs and funding decisions, and demonstrate how to use GEMS tools for selecting project types most likely to achieve target outcomes and standardizing monitoring across projects
