At this conference,the numbers of participation were more than previous Strategy Committee's conferences and the discussion about the modes and characteristics of domestic and foreign environmental funding is extensive.As Zhu Jiangang summed up,both opportunities and challenges coexist in current domestic and foreign environmental funding,there was a lot to do under this condition,and accordingly,the requirement of executive capacity of the working group was increasing.

We hope the SCEF will establish its own funding characteristics,lead the way of environmental funding in China,and join with more civil environmental organizations in building the environmental protection industry in South China.
