    Costa Rica has a long tradition of leadership and innovation in sustainable development and environmental protection. As part of its efforts to address the challenges of climate change, the country recently sent its Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC) to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The INDC focuses on a concept of climate action that transcends the traditional separation of adaptation and mitigation; rather, it aims to exploit possible synergies and create an integrated strategy for these two action areas.
