Safe & healthy cities for women in Costa Rica

The Science and Technology Week of Castro Carazo University Costa Rica

Urbanalytica is a non-profit organization created by women and specialized in urban data, climate change and inclusive communities. This workshop is part of the first phase of our project Women, City and Climate Change in Costa Rica.

This initiative is being carried out within the Climate Ambassador 2021 (GYCN) program of the young professionals network of the World Bank Group.

We hope to present the results obtained during the workshop on research platforms in Europe as part of the fight against gender violence in Latin America.
