Summary

This study, written by Guillermo Navarro of CATIE and REDD-net, looks at Costa Rica's institutional and legal framework and how it supports land, forest and carbon rights.

Costa Rica has a clear and coherent relationship between land, forest, environmental services (ES) and carbon rights in State and private land. However, indigenous communities require the recognition of forest rights in respect to management and alienation of forest products.
