Tuesday, June 20, 2017

The German government will support Costa Rica’s projects to mitigate the effects of climate change and, as a first step, has granted the country 15 million euros ($16.7 million) in aid.

Barbara Hendricks, Germany’s Federal Minister for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety, confirmed the donation on Monday during a meeting with President Luis Guillermo Solís at Casa Presidencial.

At a press conference following their meeting, they said that the cooperation agreement reaffirms both countries’ commitment to the Paris climate agreement against global warming.
