Costa Rica Announces Agricultural Materials Purchases for US$29 million

The government has announced the purchase of livestock feed and other agricultural materials, construction of wells and reservoirs, and the purchase and rental of machinery.

From a statement issued by the Presidency of the Republic of Costa Rica:

The government of the Republic will invest US$29 million from the Comision Nacional de Emergcias (CNE) – National Emergency Fund and from regular resources from various public institutions, in order to address the damages generated by the drought in some cantons in the Central Pacific and throughout the province of Guanacaste.

This follows the General Emergency Plan prepared by the National Commission for Risk Prevention and Emergency, approved today by its Board of Directors. This plan is geared specifically to the attention of agricultural and fishery producers, the water supply and protection of human and animal health.

The president of the CNE, Dr. Ivan Brenes Reyes highlighted the coordinated and articulated work that has been done by all of the institutions involved in the National Risk Management System as a response to this phenomenon which has hit the country hard since last year.
