By the A.M. Costa Rica staff
The British Embassy San Jose invites interested organizations to submit bids for a proposal to deliver a virtual seminar, as part of the UK’s climate change agenda.
The seminar must take place by March 31, 2021. The deadline for receipt of the proposal was established for Dec. 24, but the embassy extended the final period to Jan. 6. 2021, to give more opportunity to entrepreneurs who want to present their proposals budgeted in a maximum of $20,000.
Proposals are to help design and deliver a virtual seminar (in Spanish and English) on best practices in climate change adaptation, delivered over two half days.
"The seminar would demonstrate how investing in adaptation and biodiversity can prevent climate change impacts, allow faster recovery from natural shocks, and be of economic benefit," the embassy said in its statement.
This could include, for example, discussion panels on the following topics:
• Evidence-based analysis of the cost/benefits of preserving biodiversity.
• The socio-economic benefits of adaptation programs, particularly in terms of job and livelihood generation.
• The role of nature and nature-based solutions in planning for a Green Recovery.
• Best practice in integrating environmental protection into policymaking.
According to the embassy, the selected bid will assist in the selection of speakers, identifying and inviting relevant stakeholders, audiences and lead on all logistical aspects of the seminar’s organization and execution.
People interested in this opportunity can find more information on the U.K. website or by calling the Embassy phone (506) 2258-2025.
