Since 1985, COOPI has concentrated its activities predominantly in the departments of Potosì, Cochabamba, La Paz and in the region of Bolivian Chaco, where it has worked to strengthen farmers’ ability to mitigate related climate change-related risks through proper management of water resources and the use of renewable energy. In addition, it has carried out considerable work in the healthcare and social services sector, above all through programmes promoting intercultural health.
In recent years our interventions have focused on providing assistance to communities affected by natural disasters, mainly droughts and floods, working in tandem with local authorities to improve preparedness for and response to such events. Lastly, we have worked with local partners to promote programmes aimed at favouring intercultural dialogue, conflict mediation and gender equality, in order to safeguard the numerous indigenous communities scattered across the territory.
