Supporting Costa Rica’s ambitious environmental policies with data planning, strategies and partnerships

Strategy and Planning
Costa Rica
Costa Rica is famed for its natural environment and progressive approach to environmental policy making, which has yielded inspirational success stories in recent years. But successful policy making needs to be backed by statistics that are comprehensive, timely and disaggregated. When the country came to develop its most recent national strategy for the development of statistics in 2022, ensuring that data needs were adequately represented and that gaps were identified and addressed was paramount. The country’s National Inventory of Statistical Operations alongside PARIS21’s ADAPT tool gave the granular detail to inform the NSDS.
