GEMM 2015: Innovations in Implementation – October 2015
The organizing topic areas for GEMM 2015 were “water” and “money”. Stated more comprehensively: “governance and integrated regional planning incorporating cumulative effects” and “financial models revealing true project risks and opportunities, and management systems that embed sustainability into organizations”. Many are innovating through specific projects within these topic areas. GEMM 2015 drew out important insights into a common platform for dialogue through the use of a scripted video and fictional case study. It is from the Innovations in Implementation on the ground where people can begin to see their problem in a new way together and craft solutions that will succeed.
