Conference #1 "Environmental Compensation - a new tool for Sweden" started a dialog among environmental professionals on how resource-based environmental compensation can be used in Swedish environmental policy (more here). Positive feedback has led to conference #2: "Environmental Compensation -- the road forward" in Stockholm 18-19 October 2011. The conference will feature Laure Ledoux from the European Commission who will discuss the role of compensation in the Commission's "no net loss" initiative, the Swedish EPA's work on compensation guidelines, and examples of compensation in Sweden and the US. Day 2 includes a field trip to a recently completed compensation project in Stockholm. The conference is in Swedish with some English-speaking presentations.
