Claudia Dobles

  • Title
    First Lady
  • Affiliation
    Costa Rica

Dobles helped her husband, Carlos Alvarado, win election in 2018 with a pledge to “decarbonize” Costa Rica by 2050. An architect and urban planner, she’s now in charge of turning that promise into reality—setting deadlines, brokering alliances, and raising money. Job one: replacing the antiquated buses and trains that anchor the nation’s transit system with clean electric models.
