SusCoRiDa: Sustainable futures for the Costa Rica dairy sector: optimizing environmental and economic outcomes

Climate change, trade policies and environmental regulations will have a profound effect on rural livelihoods in Costa Rica. The SusCoRiDa project team will work with the appropriate stakeholders to evaluate, and ultimately recommend, dairy development pathways in Costa Rica, based on three main pillars: improving livelihoods and rural incomes; reducing greenhouse gas emissions and nutrient losses; adapting and building resilience to climate change. The aim is to improve competitiveness in the Costa Rican dairy sector, whilst safeguarding and enhancing the rural environment by promoting a shift towards a low carbon and climate-resilient economy.

The SusCoRiDa project is funded via BBSRC from the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF)
