Gulf of Mexico Ecosystem Service Logic Models & Socio-Economic Indicators (GEMS)

Duke University's Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions, The Harte Research Institute, and The Nature Conservancy are leading a project to advance standardized metrics of restoration success with input from stakeholders, relevant federal agencies, and technical experts from the five Gulf States. On this portal, project practitioners and funders can find a suite of tools that enable the identification and assessment of social and economic outcomes and linked metrics relevant for over 20 types of projects in the Gulf of Mexico.

This work is supported by the National Academies’ Gulf Research Program.
