A two-day meeting here starting next Tuesday has the goal of creating a code for sustainable construction.
The event will be at the Hotel Park Inn. There are a number of sponsors, including the Asociacion Green Building Council de Costa Rica, the Embassy of Canada, the Ministerio de Vivienda y Asentamientos Humanos and the International Finance Corp.
The gathering is called the II Foro Regional Centroamericano de Diseno y Construccion Sostenible de la Alianza Centroamericana y del Caribe para el Desarrollo Sostenible, so representatives from other countries will attend, too, organizers said.
At the same time an exhibition of sustainable products will be available, organizers said.
Some of the organizations represented are expected to sign an agreement to promote a voluntary system of evaluation or certification code for green construction, organizers said.
