Costa Rica

Costa Rica joined SWA in 2016. Costa Rica plans to reach the SDGs through a consolidated institutional structure for planning and actions, as well as a high degree of participation of the different interest groups. One example of this commitment is the development of the National Drinking Water Policy Potable (PNAP), and the National Wastewater Sanitation Policy (PNSAR) that is accompanied by a Plan of Investments in Sanitation.
