Increasing private sector engagement, participation and ambition in Costa Rica's climate action

The active involvement of the private sector is fundamental for the achievement of national and international climate goals. EUROCLIMA+, through GIZ, supports the development, scaling up and dissemination of studies and tools to increase the involvement, participation and ambition of the private sector in climate action in Costa Rica.

Toward this end, modelling studies and the creation of decarbonisation scenarios are being carried out in priority production sectors. With science-based information, sectoral decarbonisation roadmaps are being developed, aligned with the country's climate commitments and international targets. It also supports capacity building and the dissemination of information to key stakeholders.

These processes are carried out jointly and in coordination with other international cooperation projects currently underway in the country, such as Climate Action (GIZ), NDC Action (UNEP-DTU) and ARAUCLIMA (AECID).
