COUNTRY STRATEGY:

In 2012, WFP Bolivia began implementing its 2012 – 2016 Country Strategy, which called for the effective use of resources to achieve high impact results in food interventions and to provide more systematic technical assistance, in line with the new policies on food security and sovereignty promoted by the Plurinational State of Bolivia.
In summary, WFP’s role is key in the design and implementation of sustainable food security policies and strategies to strengthen the government, with the following objectives: (i) To eradicate undernutrition and malnutrition; (ii) To support the reduction of hunger costs, which have a negative impact on the development of the country; (iii) To contribute to the strengthening of institutional capacities for food security and sovereignty-related interventions; (iv)
To continue reinforcing the central, regional and local government institutions for disaster risk management and climate change preparedness; (v) To have a role in the productive field, promoting production, diversification, consumption and commercialization of food, prioritizing rural and indigenous communities and other vulnerable groups such as the elderly and people living with HIV/AIDS. WFP has been present in Bolivia since 1963.
