Blue Flag Ecological Program Blue Flag "Actions to Curb Climate Change"

"Actions against Climate Change”. This program, the newest of six Blue Flag initiatives, forms part of a national strategy to promote environmental awareness throughout the country and ensure that local development efforts run parallel with, instead of counter to, the conservation of natural resources.

The program is directed and administered by the National Blue Flag Commission, which is made up of representatives from the Ministries of Public Health, Environment and Energy, and Education, as well as the Costa Rican Tourism Institute, the Costa Rican Water and Sewer Institute, and the National Chamber of Tourism.
Every year, the commission works together with the Technical Commission to grant or revoke the award depending on the results of annual reports and inspections.
