Paola Castegnaro

Project Coordinator Costa Rica

Paola is rePLANET’s Project coordinator for Costa Rica, managing the relationship with project implementation partners and other stakeholders in the country. As an entrepreneur, she has worked developing, managing and supporting regenerative agriculture projects in Costa Rica for more than 10 years. She is involved in land-use sector activities in the country comprising agriculture, cattle management, forestry and biodiversity conservation. From her involvement in the land-use sector and academic training in economics, she has been passionate about the potential that payments for ecosystem services have for developing nations to achieve development via the conservation of their natural resources and traditional livelihoods. She has a Masters in Business Administration from the University of Edinburgh and focused her research thesis on the potential that the VCM has to generate nature positive impact in land-use activities in tropical countries. Specifically, she analysed the price at which a carbon credit would incentivize land-use conversion from extensive grazing to silvopastoral system scenarios in Costa Rica.
