In Bolivia, the national government maintained strong economic growth mainly through natural gas exports. Yet, its economy lacks dynamism because of its dependence on hydrocarbons and the extra-activist model of development. This development model is not sustainable and limits the improvement of the quality of life of rural and rural families. Binding factors are diverse: structural and institutional problems, persistent poverty and inequality, weak infrastructure, weak regulatory framework, lack of access to market financing, non-transparent investment regime, corruption, weak rule of law, etc.

Since 2008, we have been working with our Bolivian partners to strengthen the capacities of peasant families – women, men, and children – and community organizations in the exercise of their rights to food, the management of their territory, and natural resources and to obtain a decent income. Local actions benefiting nearly 6,000 PYC families are carried out: land-use plans, agro-ecological production, rural entrepreneurship, water management, etc. Concerted action and advocacy are conducted at national level.
