Governance in Costa Rica

Costa Rica is one of the greenest nations on Earth, consistently ranking in the top three across almost every metric that measures environmental sustainability. Pledging to become carbon neutral by 2021 while also tripling its gross domestic product over the past 25 years, Costa Rica is a testament to what many have predicted is possible with a strong economic policy that is environmentally conscious: decarbonizing their economy and doubling the amount of forest cover in the country while maintaining economic progress. A key pillar of their success has been the public-private partnerships built on sustainable use and protection of natural resources. One such partnership is FUNDECOR, which is based on promoting new profitable and sustainable business models associated with the management of forest ecosystems. Join us in this panel as Mr. Felipe Carazo, explains how we can all find success in balancing sustainable practices with economic prosperity.
