Foundation for the Development of the Central Volcanic Mountain Range (FUNDECOR)

Founded in 1991, FUNDECOR is an environmental NGO that seeks to be the primary promoter of Integrated Landscape Management in Costa Rica. FUNDECOR connects scientific research, local engagement, technical solutions, and policy to help create enabling conditions that allow forest protection and regeneration to become recognizable assets.

Currently, FUNDECOR leads the development of “the Costa Rica Green Hub,” a knowledge transfer platform on sustainable forest management and ecosystem services. The Green Hub organizes and generates information and knowledge based on environmental management experiences. Although Costa Rican expertise and experience will make up the bulk of Green Hub information, the platform aims to promote and share knowledge from other contexts to become a global tool for sustainable forest management.
