In the vast, inhospitable mountains and valleys of Bolivia, the indigenous rural population finds it difficult to improve their food security: malnourishment is commonplace because of the one-sided diet and the limited production opportunities. The erratic climate with unpredictable rain periods due to climate changes, does not make things any easier.
However, national legislation on the right to food and access to water has improved over the last decade. However, its implementation in practice is still lacking in many regions, so organised bottom-up pressure is needed to give additional impetus to the government. Strong farmers' organisations are the most important source of potential for progress.
