Food security: Improving nutrition in Bolivia

A case study about a project that has improved the health of the poorest people

2000 Available in English

In the mountainous regions of Chuquisaca and Potosí in Bolivia, an estimated 80% of the mainly indigenous inhabitants live in poverty. Levels of agricultural production are low due to poor soils, erosion, unpredictable weather patterns and inadequate agricultural practices. Most people also lack access to basic services such as clean water, sanitation and health care.

This case study shares how the Yanapanakuna project has worked, through participatory training and accompaniment, to improve nutrition and health while empowering families to lift themselves out of poverty.
