This webinar will 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. 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 webinar will all include a brief introduction to the GEMS project and then focus on how the GEMS products can be used for planning and monitoring restoration projects, and to inform design of restoration funding programs.
