This was the first online event hosted by the Conservation Finance Innovation Network (with assistance from the Government Innovators Network). Our expert panel highlighted several topics of keen interest to the U.S. 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.
