Background information

The Plurinational State of Bolivia has abundant natural resources such as gas and minerals. In 2015 for instance, gas alone accounted for half of the country’s export earnings and GDP. The lower middle income country experienced a stable growth during the last years, displaying an average 4.3% growth rate since 2009. Nevertheless, Bolivia still ranks among the least developed countries as the democratically elected government hindrances sufficient investments.

Bolivia´s agricultural production comprises soybeans, quinoa, sugarcane, coffee, corn, rice and potatoes; the sector as a whole accounts for 13.2% of the total GDP and employing nearly one-third of the labor force. Nevertheless, roughly one-fifth of the total domestic food supply of cereals is imported.

Despite the stable economic growth it is estimated that slightly less than half of the total population is living below the poverty line and almost one-third of infants is malnourished. As a measure against this severe situation, the country is taking part in a project launched by the WFP aiming at reducing children malnutrition and improving school performance. Widespread access to water remains a challenge for the landlocked country. According to the HDI (2014), Bolivia scored 0.662 ranking in the category of countries exhibiting a medium human development.
