Rabat/Morocco, Friday 22/11/2013

A Memorandum of Understanding has been signed in the premises of the High Commission for Water, Forestry and Desertification Control (HCEFLCD) concerning a Triangular Cooperation Project between Morocco, Costa Rica and Germany.

The main thematic areas covered in the project are:

  • Watershed management;
  • Prevention and combat of forest fire;
  • Valorization of protected areas through ecotourism and other activities;
  • Consolidation and promotion of partnerships for forests and other wooded lands through Payments for Environmental Services.

"Marruecos y Costa Rica pueden compartir éxitos y fracasos en vez de tener repetir las experiencias negativas para aprender. El milenario manejo del agua en un país con poca agua como Marruecos puede enseñar a Costa Rica, que tiene abundante agua y la desperdicia, de cómo prepararse al cambio climático. Costa Rica puede aportar enseñanza en el manejo sostenible de bosques con productos no maderables como el eco turismo. La ventaja de tener a la GIZ como tercer socio es enorme: conoce a los dos países, tiene experiencia y respeta las diferencias culturales en el trabajo de cooperación y no teme apoyar proyectos pioneros en los bosques que al mismo tiempo aportan a las convenciones de biodiversidad y cambio climático". René Castro Salazar
