Medina. Zamora Agricultural NAMA in Costa Rica july 2012

  1. 1. Agricultural NAMA: in the context of the Costa Rican Climate Change Strategy and the Hemispheric Cooperation. Daniela Medina Hidalgo Specialist in Information and Knowledge Management Agriculture Natural Resources and Climate Change Program Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture Luis Zamora Quiros National Coffee Manager Ministry of Agriculture Costa Rica
  2. 2. The Bases for Mitigation Action in Costa Rica 1990 Forestry Law and establishment of FONAFIFO ( National Forestry Financing Fund) and the Payment for Environmental Services Program (PES). Opportunities for the agricultural sector to include agro forestry in PES schemes. (coffee and livestock)
  3. 3. The Bases for Mitigation Action in Costa Rica 2009 National Climate Change Strategy The ambitious goal to achieve carbon neutrality in 2021 in the context of eco competitiveness. National Agenda International Agenda
  4. 4. National Mitigation Objectives Two main goals. The development of metrics: Verifiable and reliable quantification systems. Capacity and technology development: Efficiency in the implementation measures. •PES •C Neutral Trademark •Official Markets CDM •Voluntary Markets Development of Carbon Markets •Reforestation •Agro forestry Systems •Avoided Deforestation •Natural Regeneration CO2 Sequestration •Energy, Transportation, Solid Wastes, Industry, Agriculture, Land Management, Tourism GHG Reduction
  5. 5. A Leading National Institution Coordinate the establishment of sectoral action plans Articulate initiatives in the bigger context of the national strategy . Strengthening Synergies
  6. 6. Climate Change Objectives in the National Policy for the Agricultural Sector Promote Intersectoral efforts to mitigate and adapt to climate change. Achieve excellence in the agro environmental management. Support sustainability in the production processes, allowing greater differentiation of the national exportable supply in world markets.
  7. 7. Planning Mitigation Actions: The Coffee Sector as a Starting Point Agriculture represents 32,5 % of the national exports, form which coffee is responsible for 9,2%
  8. 8. The Coffee Sector (Distribution of production) FUENTE: ICAFE, Distribucción de la Nómina por área Cafetalera, Cosecha 10-11 90.000 Ha.
  9. 9. 50.671 Producers 172 Processing Plants 57 Exporters 32 Toasters 8% Costa Rican Labor Force 4 Unions
  10. 10. NAMA: setting the first experiences trough the Coffee Sector A model for the whole agricultural sector Institutional support (ICAFE). The potential to coordinate with other mitigation initiatives like PES. Considerable impact in relation to total the emissions generated by the agricultural sector. Practical examples like the carbon neutrality certification obtain by Coopedota.
  11. 11. Organizations involved in the process Public Sector NAMA Development and Implementation Ministry of Agriculture Ministry of Environment ICAFE INTECO Private Sector Development of Pilot experiences Coopedota CO2.cr Academy Research Development CATIE UNA INCAE Regional Cooperation Knowledge Sharing and Up scaling IICA PROMECAFE
  12. 12. Main Components needed to develop and implement NAMAs Knowledge Management (develop, systematize and share) Development and validation of MRV methodologies (Research Centers, National Institutions) Development of Pilot Projects ( Private Sector, Cooperatives, Trade Associations) Institutional Articulation (Donors, Cooperation Agencies National Institutions, Cooperatives, Exporters)
  13. 13. Key constraints identified so far in the process Technical and Financial Support. Clarity and more information of key aspects in the process, like MRV methodologies. How to link and develop operational schemes to integrate NAMAs with local carbon markets and other mitigation actions like PES.
  14. 14. National Level International Level Develop NAMAs for: Livestock, Sugar Cane, Rice, Banana and Pineapple. Prioritized for their impact (GHG emissions ) and the existing institutional backstopping. Sharing experiences with other countries, trough IICA´s cooperation schemes and regional platforms. Up scaling the NAMA experience of the coffee sector
