Abstract

In this document is presented the main results obtained with the research, about the objective and functions achievement of the Development Agrarian Institute of Costa Rica. This institution was created in 1961, with the name of National Institute of Lands and Colonization (ITCO). In the 80’s decade its name and functions was modified and received the actual name. The agrarian policies and the institutional work, mostly in the land redistributions actions, play and important role in the rural areas transformation and in the economic and social stability of this country, in contrast with the neighbors Central American nations. During the 80’s decade the rural institutions suffered a relevant reduction in their personal number and in their budgets. This situation affects their capacity to achieve the objectives and functions assigned by the law frame. In the IDA case, besides, some corruptions scandals, contribute to decline its public image and its political capacity level. The study concludes with some institutional transformations recommendations, in order to strength its impact in the rural areas and in the rural territorial development strategies that are necessaries to poverty alleviation and to increase the welfare in the Costa Rican rural territories.
