The "+Women +Nature" initiative made three financial instruments available to Costa Rican women to mitigate the economic impacts generated by COVID-19. It is a unique program in Latin America and the Caribbean, which makes Costa Rica a global benchmark for concrete actions to ensure the link between nature, gender equality and women's empowerment. It seeks to support women biodiversity managers, agricultural producers, ecotourism entrepreneurs, scientists and researchers who will be able to access credit with favorable conditions to finance their activities.
