The workshop was inaugurated by Andrea Meza, Director of Climate Change at MINAE. Then Pascal Girot and Iván Delgado, of the Department of Climate Change of the MINAE, presented the final document of the Policy of Adaptation to Climate Change.

The dynamics of working tables were structured in 6 groups according to the thematic axes included in the Plan: Agriculture and fisheries, biodiversity and forests, infrastructure, water resources, health and tourism.

The day ended with a plenary session for the presentation of the main conclusions obtained in each discussion table and the feedback between them. Finally, the workshop was closed by Fernando Mora, Vice Minister of Waters, Seas, Coasts and Wetlands.
