INTERNATIONAL FOOD AND AGRIBUSINESS MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATION
YOU ARE INVITED TO ATTEND IFAMA 2022
Costa Rica, a leader in sustainability since the 1980's, was recently recognized by
the United Nations as a "Champion of the Earth."
Join us in Costa Rica!
Located between the Tropic of Cancer and Capricorn, contains ecological rich surroundings: forests, waters, soils, flora and fauna. Its tropical climate is modified by its geographical relief——mountains, plains, and plateaus and is positioned within the Central American isthmus and the influence of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Although Costa Rica is a small territory, it holds 5% of the earth's biodiversity which is protected by the National System of Areas Conservation, preserving 25% of its national territory.
