    Costa Rica has been able to strengthen its capacity to take advantage of the potential of Earth Observations, thanks to its participation in the various groups, programs and initiatives developed by GEO. We increased the capacity and integration of our spatial data infrastructure, implemented new mechanisms for forest monitoring and identification of essential life support areas, studied innovative mechanisms for modeling ecosystem services, and evaluated new urban monitoring tools. In 2023, we expect to expand our involvement by integrating more Costa Rican institutions and organizations with GEO and AmeriGEO activities.
