Conservation agencies are planning massive expansion of their conservation activities in the largely tropical developing world. Allocating scarce conservation resources among developing nations requires consideration of a broader set of factors than is typically considered in conservation decision-making.

Especially important are aspects of political economy that place conservation investments at risk. This Working Group will try to develop a support framework for making allocation decisions that should also help guide efforts to ameliorate risks.
