Climate Resilient Recovery and Territorial Development Project

About the project

Using reconstruction as an entry point, this project aims to operationalize Costa Rica’s commitment towards comprehensive and inclusive disaster risk management and climate change adaptation through resilient infrastructure and services. The project takes a territorial approach to disaster recovery, climate, and multi-hazard resilience through the combination of structural and non-structural measures that can be applied to both reconstruction and prospective resilience-building investments and activities. The project design also considers spatial inequalities and exclusion of vulnerable groups including ethno-racial minorities, the extreme poor, refugees, asylum seekers, and migrants in vulnerable conditions.

Project Development Objective (PDO)

To increase access to disaster and climate resilient infrastructure and services in selected regions of the Republic of Costa Rica.
