The Bolivia country strategy fits very well into the national development strategy and plans to focus on ‘vivir bien’ and sustainable development. The following main themes are identified for all future interventions in the cooperation with Bolivia:
- Environment & nature resources (water, irrigation, climate change, pollution, etc.)
- Food security & sovereignty (focus on family agriculture)
- Social development (social insecurity and safety, public health, indigenous rights, multiculturalism, immigration, etc.)
The country strategy identifies the following main transversal and cross-cutting theme:
- Research support (policy, data management, statistics, academic English, scientific writing, interface with society, etc.)
Priority is given to universities of the national system (public institutions and UCB, excluding military and police schools) and UNIBOL (3 Indigenous universities). Cooperation with institutes outside of the central axis (La Paz - Cochabamba - Santa Cruz) is stimulated.
