Fernando Mora Rodríguez, Deputy Minister of Waters, Seas, Coasts and Wetlands of Costa Rica (2014-2018), met the Earth Charter in 2010 as a participant in the youth course on Youth Leadership, Environmental Sustainability, and Ethics (Youth Leadership, Environmental Sustainability, and Ethics.)
His main goal as Deputy Minister was to lead, together with other institutions, the reform and creation of public policies related to water resources, wetlands, coastal and marine areas, and developing environmentally sustainable and socially inclusive processes where welfare and human security are promoted along with the stability and health of ecosystems.
In this video, Fernando explains how the Earth Charter has influenced him in his decisions and some challenges and lessons learned during his experience in public administration.
