SAN JOSÉ, Costa Rica (IDN) – Ya han pasado veintidós años desde que Costa Rica se embarcó en su programa nacional de pago por servicios ambientales (PSA), como primera nación en el mundo en iniciar un plan nacional para compensar a los propietarios por conservar los bosques para las personas y el planeta.

Ahora que el mundo lucha por reducir las emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero y limitar el aumento en la temperatura global para finales del siglo, esta nación Centroamericana de 5 millones de personas ha servido como ejemplo de políticas públicas que abordan la aplicación de impuestos a combustibles fósiles para favorecer la protección de la naturaleza. El país se compromete a alcanzar la neutralidad en carbono para el 2021.
