Program Areas: Clean Energy and Environment and Climate Change

As part of Costa Rica’s efforts to become carbon neutral by 2021, it is developing a National Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD+) Program to lower emissions and access climate finance. Winrock scientists are supporting Costa Rica’s efforts by helping it to develop emissions accounting approaches that comply with the strict requirements of international climate change mitigation financing mechanisms like the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility’s Carbon Fund and the Green Climate Fund.
