“Review of the potential risks and benefits of a local registration in Bolivia”
Background: Practical Action is an international development organisation that puts ingenious ideas to work so people in poverty can change their world. Practical Action helps people find solutions to some of the world’s toughest problems. Challenges made worse by climate change and gender inequality. It works with communities to develop ingenious, lasting and locally owned solutions for agriculture, water and waste management, climate resilience and clean energy. And it shares what works with others, so answers that start small can grow big.
Practical Action consists of a UK registered charity with projects in Africa, Asia and Latin America, an independent publishing company and a technical consulting service. It combines these specialisms to multiply its impact and help shape a world that works better for everyone.
Practical Action started operations in Bolivia in 2010. It is registered as an international NGO and has an agreement with the Bolivian Government in order to implement projects with diverse funding sources, mainly international. Practical Action’s work in Bolivia is very relevant for promoting development processes in both Andean and Amazon areas: it plays an important role in demonstrating models and technologies that work for people and the planet. It is also well positioned as a key development player in the country and has a very good relationship both with the public sector and the civil society.
