The conference opened on Monday and will continue through December 12. It’s being held in Madrid, Spain. The Climate Change Directorate, part of the Ministry of Environment and Energy, is there to participate in negotiations.
The involvement of Costa Rica in the summit has been picked up on by international press which adds to the positive environment for foreign investment in the country which is seen as aligned with global interests.
