Environment
Boliviaâ's environment faces threat from soil erosion and degradation due to overgrazing and extensive agricultural use.1 The use of chemical fertilizers, slash and burn agriculture, and poor cultivation methods has leached nutrients from Boliviaâ's naturally fertile soil.2 Attempts at rapid industrialization and economic development have also created concerns with deforestation and industrial pollution.3 In addition to polluting the environment, these practices have also threatened biodiversity.4 There are roughly 125 species of plants and animals in Bolivia that are endangered.5 Some direct results of climate change in Bolivia could be food insecurity, natural disasters, mosquito borne diseases, and forest fires.6

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 ;
