To this end, proven, innovative and cost-effective EbA approaches will be developed, up-scaled and applied at the landscape level, linking them with governance platforms and mechanisms, including municipal governments, producers; basin and biological corridors committees.
The program will be implemented for a period of 5 years and is financed by the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV) of the Federal Republic of Germany, through its International Climate Initiative (IKI).
In the countries, we work with implementation partners through the governing bodies. In Ecuador, the political partner is the Ministry of the Environment, Water and Ecological Transition (MAATE), which will cooperate with the program through the National Adaptation Department at the political and technical level. In Guatemala, the political partner is the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources (MARN). Contact between the program and MARN will be made mainly through the International Cooperation Coordination and the Climate Change Directorate. In Costa Rica, the political partner will be the Ministry of Environment and Energy (MINAE). The program will cooperate with MINAE through the Vice Ministry of the Environment, the Vice Ministry of Waters and Oceans, and the Climate Change Directorate
