Costa Rica

The GNI per capita of Costa Rica is US $8,740 (2012,World Bank), and its Human Development Index is 0.773 (2012,UNDP), both second in Central America following Panama, though income disparity has expanded in recent years such that fewer people can enjoy the benefits of economic growth. Costa Rica is well known for some of the world's richest biodiversity in spite of its limited land space, and the government is proactively taking steps to balance economic growth and environment conservation.

Given these circumstances, JICA has provided assistance for environmental issues, including measures against Climate Change; for promoting industrial sector, targeting on small and medium-sized enterprises; and for the socially vulnerable such as residents in impoverished regions and the people with disabilities.
