Sustainable public policy in Costa Rica

In November 2022, LifeWatch ERIC invited coordinators of national and regional biodiversity information networks linked to GBIF, the Global Biodiversity Information Facility, to its ICT-Core office in Seville, to discuss how they could work together to accelerate the development and use of data technology networks and services to support sustainable ecosystem management. The meeting brought together 30 experts and coordinators from 15 countries in Latin America, the Caribbean and Ibero-America. In this video we hear from Federico Torres Carballo, who is a Professor of Economics and Information Technology at the Costa Rica Institute of Technology, in which he tells us about the great leaps the Costa Rican government has been making towards true sustainability.
