Environment
Bolivia’s environment faces threat from soil erosion and degradation due to overgrazing and extensive agricultural use. The use of chemical fertilizers, slash-and-burn agriculture and poor cultivation methods have leached nutrients from Bolivia’s naturally fertile soil. Attempts at rapid industrialization and economic development have raised concerns over deforestation and industrial pollution.1 Areas in the northeast of the nation are prone to flooding in the spring, and volcanic activity can occur in the Andes along the Bolivian-Chilean border.2 The shrinkage of glaciers in the Andes has the potential to cause droughts for countries such as Bolivia and Chile,3 and the World Bank is implementing measures to assess and address the issue.4 The three components of the plan include watershed management — taking into account the retreat of ...See More the glaciers — as well as an adaptive river defense.5 Drought is often an issue in the western and eastern areas, particularly for livestock and crops, and for water access; the Chaco region in particular is vulnerable to the effects of drought, as their subsistence farming relies upon rainfall.6 Show Less

Bolivia is one of the poorest and least developed countries in Latin America. Following a disastrous economic crisis during the early 1980s, reforms spurred private investment, stimulated economic growth, and cut poverty rates in the 1990s. The period 2003-05 was characterized by political instability, racial tensions, and violent protests against plans - subsequently abandoned - to export Bolivia's newly discovered natural gas reserves to large Northern Hemisphere markets. In 2005, the government passed a controversial hydrocarbons law that imposed significantly higher royalties and required foreign firms then operating under risk-sharing contracts to surrender all production to the state energy company ...See More in exchange for a predetermined service fee. The global recession slowed growth, but Bolivia recorded the highest growth rate in South America during 2009. During 2010-12 high world commodity prices sustained rapid growth and large trade surpluses. However, a lack of foreign investment in the key sectors of mining and hydrocarbons, along with growing conflict among social groups pose challenges for the Bolivian economy. Show Less ;
