 Bolivia

Executive Summary

Denmark is continuing its partnership on development cooperation with Bolivia until 2018, when Denmark will be phasing out the current partnership policy with Bolivia. The partnership focuses on poverty reduction, sustainable development, green growth and promotion of human rights.

Danish development cooperation with Bolivia dates back to the 1970s. It was stopped in 1980 due to a military coup, but was resumed in 1994 based on a new Bolivian political commitment to poverty reduction and the promotion of respect for the rights of indigenous peoples.

The core elements of the Danish development cooperation with Bolivia are to promote sustainable management of natural resources such as forests and agriculture, and to promote green technology and energy efficiency. The main target groups of the policy are indigenous peoples and women, who are particularly vulnerable.

The goals and visions are pursued by promoting and facilitating partnerships between the public and private sectors and civil society, with the following strategic objectives:

  • Promotion of inclusive and sustainable, green economic growth
  • Promotion of political and civil rights for all
  • Promotion of sustainable natural resource management
