Bolivia has been one of Germany’s key partners in the context of its international cooperation for four decades. GIZ has maintained an office in La Paz since 1995.
GIZ cooperates with various governmental and non-governmental partners at national, regional and municipal level. On behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and together with the German development bank KfW, GIZ focuses on the following three priority areas:
- sustainable agricultural development
- water and sanitation
- governance and democracy
GIZ also supports projects on renewable energies, judicial reform and law-making, indigenous intercultural education, combating violence against women, and conflict monitoring and resolution. Gender equality and advisory services tailored to the multiethnic context are important cross-cutting topics in GIZ’s activities.
