THE EARTHSHOT PRIZE

THE EARTHSHOT PRIZE

Costa Rica was awarded for Payment for Environmental Services (PSA), a program that has been instrumental in recovering the nation’s forest cover.

 

The PSA Program consists of a financial recognition by the State, through the Fonafifo, to the owners of forests and forest plantations because of the environmental services they provide that directly affect the protection and improvement of the environment.
