For several years, Bolivia has benefited from macroeconomic stability through the exploitation of non-renewable resources, which generates territorial conflicts. It remains in the list of the most unequal countries in the world.
In the priority areas of intervention, isolated rural populations living in family farming are very poor. More than 30% of children suffer from chronic malnutrition. Strong gender inequities persist. Prices of agricultural products are usually low. Unsustainable farming practices are spreading. The consequences of climate change are sometimes disastrous.
Following the change in the societal model introduced in 2008, the legal framework and public policies have evolved in favor of historically excluded groups. Nevertheless, these changes are accompanied by a certain degree of control by the State and a loss of autonomy for civil society organizations.
The intervention of ADG and its Bolivian partners aims to strengthen the capacities of families and community organizations
- in the exercise of their rights to food;
- the management of their territory and natural resources;
- to obtain decent incomes.
Local territorial management actions benefiting nearly 6000 peasant families are carried out: land use planning, agro-ecological production, rural entrepreneurship, etc.
Consultation and advocacy are carried out at national level.
