    Costa Rica News – This week in Costa Rica representatives of 17 countries analyzed tools to finance the protection and responsible forest protection and management, organizers said.

    The event is organized by the Tropical Agricultural Research and Higher Education Center (CATIE), based in Costa Rica, the United Nations Organization for Food and Agriculture (FAO) and the German Technical Cooperation Agency (GIZ).

    “The objective of this activity is to help different countries to develop effective strategies to promote financing sustainable forest management and forest preservation,” said in a statement the deputy director general of CATIE, Ronnie de Camino.

    During meetings organizers intend to exchange information and lessons learned, in order to develop innovative financial instruments and mechanisms, as well as best practices to achieve sustainable forest management.

    The event, which began on Monday and ends tomorrow, includes representatives of the forestry sector and experts from Germany, Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Chile, Ecuador, Spain, Guatemala, Indonesia, Italy, Lebanon, Morocco, Nicaragua, Peru, Trinidad and Tobago and Turkey.

    Among the success stories that are analyzed by the participants highlighted the Payment for Environmental Services in Costa Rica, which is to pay private to protect the forest within its grounds.

    Other examples cited by De Camino are Chile, that “two million hectares reforested with its incentive system” and Brazil that “four million hectares reforested through tax exemption.”

    At the end of the meeting organizers collect experiences and proposals for publishing a book that purports to be a guide for countries to increase protection of their forests.
