UN International Fund for Agricultural Development

IFAD funds project to combat climate change and enhance Bolivian food security

The UN’s International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and the Government of Bolivia have signed a financing agreement that initiates the implementation of the ACCESOS Rural Project.

This rural development intervention will help Bolivian small-scale farmers counter the great impact of climate change on the country’s rural areas to increase staple food production, thus enhancing food security.

The total project investment will be US$26.5 million dollars ($23.6 million from IFAD funds) and is expected to benefit more than 19,000 families from the departments of Chuquisaca, La Paz, Cochabamba, Potosí and Tarija over the next five years.

ACCESOS rural will target 430 communities in 35 different municipalities of the above-mentioned departments and will focus on improving the production of potatoes, tomatoes, onions, broad beans, corn, apples and peaches. These agricultural products have been identified as priorities due to their key role in the country’s food security, as they are among the most demanded in the domestic market and, therefore, more prone to inflation.
