What it is?

Adapta2+ is a five-year program financed by the United Nations Adaptation Fund. This is an international entity that finances projects and programs for adaptation to climate change in developing countries that are particularly vulnerable to the adverse effects of climate change. It is interested in performing concrete actions to adapt to climate change in Costa Rica.  The program is executed by Fundecooperación as a National Country Implementation Entity related to the Adaptation Fund with the support of the Climate Change Department of the Ministry of the Environment and Energy (MINAE) and the  Ministry of Agriculture and LIvestock (MAG).

The purpose of the initiative is to reduce the vulnerability of communities to the impact of climate change and to improve the resilience of the following production sectors in the economy that are categorized as being critical to Costa Rica: the agribusiness sector, water resources, coastal zones, and skills creation. That is why more than 40 domestic initiatives have been supported with hopes of achieving an impact on 483 agricultural production families and of benefiting more than 50 water operators that provide the resource to more than 50,000 people in different communities throughout the country so they are able to adapt to climate change.
