I am honored and grateful to welcome you to Arlette Pichardo Muñiz's renewed website. The result of the collaborative work of countless people who orchestrated their creative talent in the heat of primary relationships permeated with affection. A space designed with a view to an enlightened, user-friendly and aesthetically pleasing enhancement.    

When I was 25 years old, besides having planted trees, while waiting for the arrival of my son Jorge Luis, I was writing "Planning and Social Programming", the first of its kind published in Costa Rica with several reprints and subsequent editions in Argentina.

The use of my publications in study programs, research, evaluations and in general in the management of public institutions, social organizations and private entities, at international, national, regional and local levels, can be considered as the main achievement of my professional career.
