Event description: Our expert panel highlighted several topics of keen interest to the US and international conservation communities, including the recent release of a report on a conservation finance "summit meeting" organized by Pat Coady in New York in the spring of 2007. Our panel also considered the prospects for international progress on sustainable development as facilitated by such institutions as the Global Environmental Facility (GEF), which both our panel members helped to create and launch.

This webinar was moderated by Jim Levitt with panelists Patrick Coady and Ian Johnson.
