Costa Rica


The goal of this project done in conjunction with the Camara de Industrias de Costa Rica (CICR) was to recommend strategies for the advancement of training programs that would facilitate the further growth of green jobs in Costa Rica. By researching economic green development in China, Russia, Mexico, and Brazil and conducting qualitative interviews with nine companies and two universities within Costa Rica, we developed a list of recommendations classified in the areas of coordination with public and private institutions, management and evaluation, CICR training programs, job search issues, and international collaboration. These recommendations will help the CICR advance the proliferation of green jobs and training programs in Costa Rica.
