Spotlight on innovation in Curridibat
Curridabat has a development vision called “Sweet City Framework” vision based on five dimensions – Biodiversity, Infrastructure, Habitat, Coexistence and Productivity. The Framework mandates the city’s innovation work.
For instance, the city has implemented a successful funding initiative called “Spaces of Sweetness”, which aims to redesign Curridabat’s neighbourhoods to harmonise their infrastructure with biodiversity. The participatory process of the initiative resulted in a comprehensive proposal to set up collaborative workspaces and change land use as well as mobilising real estate investment through Public-Private Partnerships between the municipality, private landowners and developers.
