Project Description

Despite the billions of dollars that will be devoted to restoration of Gulf ecosystems over the coming decades, there is no ready platform for assessing and reporting on restoration progress and effectiveness in terms of the broad set of desired environmental, social and economic goals shared across institutions involved in Gulf restoration. This project intends to advance standardized measures of restoration work through the development of ecosystem service logic models (ESLMs) to provide accountability and produce a transferable and scalable approach for measuring success and comparing restoration alternatives and outcomes across disparate Gulf projects.The goal of these models is to allow the comparison of outcomes across projects and the scaling of monitoring results to the state or regional levels providing a critical tool for assessing restoration progress and effectiveness
