The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) has been working in Costa Rica since the early 1960s.

The German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) currently adopts a regional approach to cooperation with Costa Rica, whereas the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) focuses primarily on bilateral programmes with the country.
