Project Objectives

To support: better distribution of natural resources (in favour of those poorest); work to achieve the 2009 Constitution (which gives equal rights to the former discriminated indigenous people)


Norwegian People's Aid worked in Bolivia during the period 1983-93 and restarted in 2005. The cooperation is related to organizational development and political education, which among other things addresses the division of roles between authorities and organizations. The work is specifically aimed at indigenous peoples rights, natural resource management and land reform. The peasant women's organization also helps to promote women's participation in the political discussion.
