biodiversity in costa rica
biodiversity is a resource that has tremendous potential either intellectually or as a tool for economic development of a country ends.
the tropics of the americas (neotropics) where costa rica is located contain a greater diversity of species and ecosystems and a broader range of interactions compared with other tropical regions. Of course this diversity is also much richer than the temperate and cold zones.
with just 51100 km2 of land (0. 03% of the world) and km2 of territorial sea costa rica is considered one of the 20 most biodiverse countries in the world. Its geographical position its two coasts and its mountainous system which provides numerous and varied microclimates are some of the reasons that explain this natural wealth both in species and ecosystems. The more than species that are supposed to be found in this small country represent nearly 4% of total species estimated worldwide. Of these just over are insects.
the administration of costa rica's biodiversity is the ministry of environment and energy (minae) and within this specifically to the national system of conservation areas (sinac) responsible for the conservation and sustainable development of the country's biodiversity. Sinac has 11 conservation areas across the country and technical support senior management.
these 11 conservation areas are the regions established by minae to undertake a decentralized management of biodiversity with the active participation of the communities surrounding protected areas that house. This participation is vital to the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity at local national and global levels. Inbio has worked very closely with sinac since its foundation and especially after 1998 with the establishment of inbio-sinac joint program.
the country has just over 25% of its territory under some category of protection which increases with the support of the private sector to create private reserves specially devoted to ecotourism and research. This is a conservation effort that few countries in the world have undertaken and in which costa rica has invested great resources for the welfare of present and future generations.
to achieve conservation of protected areas and natural resources in the long term their knowledge through inventories and scientific studies and assessment by society plays a key role. There are studies that provide both basic and applied information on the biological wealth of the country (what exists where what it does condition etc. ) prepared by numerous public and private institutions and ngos. In the last five years it has been particularly emphasizing development studies including valuation methodologies that provide the benefits of protected areas and the resources they protect; ecotourism fishing medicinal plants bioprospecting and payments for environmental services are examples of topics that have been discussed in these terms. Parallel to this economic assessment is developing in costa rica and around the world institutions and public and private organizations develop educational programs and public awareness in order to contribute to a change of attitude toward nature in society.
the legal framework for the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity is very broad in the country. It has been strengthened with the implementation of the biodiversity law passed in 1998 and formulation through a highly participatory local and national level process of the national strategy for conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity finalized and made official in 1999. The biodiversity law establishes that the national commission for biodiversity management (conagebio) is also responsible together with sinac management of natural resources in the country. Complementing national efforts on legal matters at international and regional level several agreements signed and ratified by costa rica like biological diversity which controls traffic in endangered species called cites and the wetlands or ramsar among many other.
