GEM Initiative at Yale University
Governance, Environment,
and Markets Initiative


The Governance, Environment and Markets (GEM) Initiative is based at the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, with Prof. Ben Cashore as its faculty director. It aims to reorient environmental governance research and practice from short term and single intervention approaches towards durable “results based” problem solving that embraces, rather than bypasses, multi-level complexity.
To accomplish this, GEM focuses on identifying strategic insights and policy learning capable of building effective environmental governance solutions. GEM contains two related efforts: fostering Yale based programs and projects and developing a global network of practitioners and scholars focused on creating environmental governance solutions in a multi-level world.
