The GGGI office will be located at the University of Costa Rica (UCR) and from there it will support projects in Latin American and Caribbean countries aimed at decarbonization and the fight against climate change.

“The Global Green Growth Institute is interested in triangular cooperation between the Republic of Korea and Costa Rica so that the GGGI office is for the benefit of the Latin American and Caribbean country,” Ban Ki-moon said in a statement from the Costa Rican government.

“We recognize the GGGI as a strategic partner to implement the transformation of the economy in accordance with the National Decarbonization Plan and the green economic recovery, given the objectives and mission of the organization, in addition to its proximity to the Green Climate Fund and its link with Korea,” Alvarado commented.

The Agreement was signed by Rodolfo Solano, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Costa Rica, and Dr. Frank Rijsberman, Director-General of GGGI, and witnessed by Carlos Alvarado Quesada, the President of Costa Rica, and Ban Ki-moon, President and Chair of GGGI and the Eighth Secretary-General of the United Nations.

During the meeting, they also reported on the progress to formalize technical assistance with the Costa Rican Electricity Institute through the project “Replacement of air conditioners with refrigerants that have high global warming potential by existing initiatives in the market that allow reducing emissions generated by this source”.

Another project in which it seeks to advance is one of assistance to Costa Rica’s Ministerio de Agricultura y Ganadería de Costa Rica (MAG) – Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock of – for the design of a National Financing Instrument to implement the Recarbonization of Global Soils.

Created in 2010, the GGGI, a treaty-based inter-governmental international development organization headquartered in Seoul, South Korea, aims to promote green growth, a paradigm characterized by a balance between economic growth and environmental sustainability.
