OIKO LOGICA with UNIDO in Costa Rica

by | May 25, 2017

Since 2015, OIKO LOGICA has been awarded a membership in the UNIDO Climate Technology Center & Network. In 2017 we have been awarded the UNIDO/CTCN – “Designing a Standard Protocol to mainstreaming Climate Change Adaptation in local government Land Use Plans in Costa Rica”.

In consortium with Ecoplan, a local consulting firm specialized in Land Management Plans, Coastal Regulatory Plans and Management Plans.

A multi-disciplinary team of 8 experts is providing technical assistance to Secretaría Técnica Nacional Ambiental (SETENA), to create a standard operational Protocol to mainstream climate change into municipal strategic planning documents. The Protocol will guide the inclusion of climate change adaptation measures into land use planning through a participative process with the institutions, the academic community and other relevant stakeholders. The expected outcome is Technical Operational Guideline and a GIS software decision making tool to effectively enable the local institutions to introduce the environmental variable in land use plans.

We use Earth Science technology to improve the quality of life in our world, especially the economic livelihood opportunities of the world's most vulnerable populations and the sustainable use of the natural resources of our planet. Our work is divided in six main program areas- Climate Adaptation, Climate Mitigation, Ecosystems, Natural Resources, Poverty & Livelihoods and Climate Services.
