Bolivia is an important partner country of VLIR-UOS. From 2003 to 2023 VLIR-UOS spent more than € 11,2 million in cooperation with Bolivia, including a long-term Institutional University Cooperation (IUC) Programme with Universidad Mayor de San Simon (UMSS) of Cochabamba and an ongoing IUC programme with the Universidad Católica Boliviana (UCB) which started in 2017 and is now in its 2nd phase of cooperation. This IUC, together with a number of TEAM/SI projects form the core of the cooperation with Bolivia.

Bolivia is also one of our 29 scholarship countries.

Ongoing projects

Bolivia and Agenda 2030 - country reference framework

VLIR-UOS revised its country approach towards an ‘Agenda 2030 on Sustainable Development’ centred approach. Moreover, VLIR-UOS wants to facilitate connections between different actors and projects present in a given country. With these objectives in mind, the Country Reference Framework (CRF) for Bolivia supports teams of academics when identifying and formulating project proposals, by providing a context analysis focused on Agenda 2030 on Sustainable Development and the higher education sector in Bolivia, and by providing an overview of Belgian development actors active in Bolivia, their ongoing projects and partners, in view of exploration of opportunities for synergy and complementarity. Belgian Non-Governmental Actors involved in the geographic Joint Strategic Framework (JSF) Bolivia as well as those involved in the thematic JSF on Higher Education and Science for Sustainable Development have been included.
