    This report was prepared within the framework of the FAO/World Bank Cooperative Programme of the Investment Centre. This study has two overarching goals. First, it provides a critical review of the main features, threats, and challenges faced by forests and forestry in Bolivia regarding the provision of goods and environmental services, and their implications for economic growth, and people’s well being. Second, it offers some key elements contributing to the formulation of a national strate gy aimed at sustainable development of Bolivian forestry. By so doing it provides inputs for a blueprint strategy of the World Bank that seeks to determine which might be the critical actions for helping to achieve sustainable forestry management in the Andean countries. The World Bank forestry policy, launched in 2002, provides general guidelines for the World Bank’s investment support in the forestry sector. This policy, however, needs to be complemented by some country-specific strategies. Th is document helps to such effort by assessing the Bolivian case.The specific objectives of this document are: (1) to carry out an initial assessment of the forest resource-base in the country, and the dynamics underpinning forest management, (2) to critically examine the contents of current forest policy and their implications, and some inter-sectoral linkages, (3) to offer an assessment of the main obstacles impeding the achievement of sector policy objectives, (4) to examine forest policy priorities as stated in the country’s development strategies, and other related legislation, and (5) to suggest relevant areas of interventions harmonizing them with the World Bank priorities. It is expected that the sum of these different objectives will contribute to the design of alternatives for forestry investment in the country that could play an effective role in stimulating an environmentally sound and equitable economic expansion to contribute to poverty alleviation in rural areas.

    The Global Action Plan of the UN Decade of Family Farming (UNDFF 2019-28) recognizes the need to promote rural communication services (RCS) to advance sustainable food systems. RCS comprise demand-led communication processes, media applications and institutional arrangements to respond to the needs of family farmers and rural populations in a sustained and inclusive manner.This report summarizes the results and takeaways of online consultations and a virtual Regional Forum on RCS for Family Farming in Asia and the Pacific, organized in 2022 by ComDev Asia (CDA), a regional communication initiative, in collaboration with FAO, farmers’ organizations, rural institutions and communication networks.

    The Plurinational State of Bolivia: Belgium's contribution through the Special Fund for Emergency and Rehabilitation Activities (SFERA) – Anticipatory Action window 2023

    The population of the Altiplano, mostly indigenous, has the highest poverty rate in the country, and relies on subsistence agriculture as its main livelihood (potato, quinoa, cañahua, barley, oats and alfalfa). This population is highly vulnerable to the effects of climate change and faces recurrent threats such as drought, frost and hailstorms that negatively affect their agricultural livelihoods and food security. More than 2 800 communities and 486 000 families in six departments of the Bolivian Altiplano have been affected by these events. In this context, it is imperative to urgently implement anticipatory actions to mitigate climate-induced risks to the livelihoods and food security of the most vulnerable people. To contribute to the achievement of this objective, the Government of the Kingdom of Belgium contributed USD 344 412 to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), through the SFERA programme. Thanks to this generous contribution, FAO will support 6 500 vulnerable households dependent on family farming in the Bolivian Altiplano, with water harvesting storage and supply systems, feeding and animal health actions, as well as distribution of drought-tolerant seeds and agricultural inputs.
