There is nothing for developing for survival but to produce destruction of ecology... That is the cause of crisis of biodiversity today. Most of Rainforest holding terrestrial biodiversity exists in developing countries. In these areas, growth of economy at higher speed is desired. But it is apparent that developing in same way as the past threatens biodiversity, and as a result a serious impact against subsistence of humankind will arise. So what should we do for that problem . Conservation of biodiversity itself contributes for country’s developing. There is a good experience of looking for and trying such a new model in Costa Rica, Central America. In this seminar, we would like to introduce some good examples in Costa Rica and what we, JICA, can do for mainstreaming biodiversity.
