ACCION Clima III - NDC implementation Costa Rica and regional knowledge exchange

Costa Rica wants to implement its ambitious national climate targets in sectors and actively contribute to the regional and international dissemination of good climate policy approaches. For this purpose, the project strengthens climate-friendly governance and institutional capacities for integrated climate protection strategies and policies. It develops ambitious NDC implementation projects, i. a. in the transport and waste sectors. It supports financing arrangements with the private, insurance and banking sectors, the linking of green fiscal reform and climate incubators, and the development of monitoring mechanisms. The project also strengthens cooperation on climate protection at local level with municipal actors and the private sector. Green recovery also plays a role here. Regionally, it provides a hub for innovative NDC implementation as well as an interface for ICI projects in Central America and the Caribbean.

State of implementation/results

  • The project also provided technical support in 2023 for the Operation COP initiative, which helped prepare young people for COP28 in advance of their participation. ACCIÓN Clima supported the preparation of the topics of climate justice, private sector and climate action.
  • Information, results and progress of the project are disseminated in the social networks (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Linkendin) of GIZ Costa Rica and in the IKI Newsletter Central America/Caribbean.
  • The project manages a thematic community for the dissemination of solutions to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions on the PANORAMA Solutions knowledge platform (bit.ly/…).
  • Since 03.08.2023, the podcast "The Countdown to 2050" presents contributions on IKI project activities in Central America and the Caribbean.
  • In July 2023, the project supported the Institute for Community Development and Advisory Services (IFAM) in the implementation of the "Disruptive Communities" competition, with the aim of promoting the development of projects by communities that are oriented towards the challenges and opportunities of climate change.
  • Since 27/07/2023, the IKI Gender Responsive Event Management Checklist has been available in Spanish for IKI projects and has been shared with projects in the region and other IKI interfaces.
  • Together with the Costa Rican Chamber of Retailers (CANACODEA), trainings on energy efficiency were offered on 26.06, 03.07, 10.07 and 17.07.2023. About 20 retail companies participated in the trainings.
  • Together with the IKI project BioFrame, ACCIÓN Clima supports the process "Transforming the agreement into action, restoring biodiversity from a women's perspective". This process aims to identify and create instruments for women working in the field of biodiversity in order to expand their political influence. In this context, an event was held on 30 May 2023 with around 30 women park rangers from Costa Rican national parks to train them in the use of concrete instruments for political participation and to highlight their importance for the conservation of biodiversity.
  • As part of the interface function for Central America and the Caribbean, the project organised a two-day networking workshop from 15-16 May 2023. The format was attended by 108 representatives of IKI cooperation projects as well as project partners and stakeholders from the region. On 17.05.2023, IKI projects in Costa Rica were visited.
  • In cooperation with the municipal administration of Santa Ana and the Arquitectura Solidario Foundation, a bus was converted into a storage parking space for bicycles for community members. ACCIÓN Clima helped organise participatory discussion sessions on the use and design of the bus. The bus was officially presented on 01.02.2023.
