Costa Rica President concludes his participation in COP26

On his last day of attending the United Nations Conference on Climate Change (COP26), Alvarado will also be in a panel discussion at the University of Sussex’s Institute of Development Studies.

Finally, it will co-host the Ashden Awards, awards that support ideas and changes to reduce emissions and help create a greener and more sustainable future in the world, thanks to an invitation from Prince Charles, Prince of Wales.

This Wednesday, on its third day at COP26, the President of Costa Rica confirmed that they have an opportunity at this meeting to connect the climate agenda with biodiversity.

“We can promote synergies between climate and biodiversity actions, both locally and globally, through mutually supportive policies,” Alvarado said at the opening of the session: The Way Forward: Bridging the Gap in Nature between COP26 and COP15.

In Costa Rica we thought it was impossible to reverse. Today, he noted, we’re starting to see tigers, pumas, and tapirs in our forests.

He emphasized that HAC (The High Aspirational Alliance for Nature and People) is a great example of hope, real change takes time and perseverance, and today my request is for them to talk about this, says the news.

The event, organized by Costa Rica and France, co-chairs of the Humanitarian Assistance Committee, and the United Kingdom, co-chair of ocean issues, discussed how to strengthen the relationship between the climate agenda and biodiversity.

The HAC initiative, introduced last January, aims to conserve 30 percent of the planet’s ecosystems by 2030, both on land and at sea with the goal of helping reverse the climate crisis.

On another point in his speech, Alvarado reiterated what he expressed this Tuesday at the COP26 Forum on Forests and Land Use, when he said that indigenous and community peoples are the best protectors of nature and should be listened to and given priority in conservation projects.

Minister of Environment and Energy (Menai), Andrea Meza, said the countries gathered at the HAC recognize that environmental protection and climate action are necessary conditions for a life full of well-being.

In this regard, Minai declared that this climate summit represents a key opportunity in preparing for the UN talks on biodiversity in China, next year, when countries must decide whether to expand the goal of protecting the planet to 30 percent. .
