2016 Interfaith Climate Conference Workshop: Climate Change in Bolivia.
Humberto Camacho, Hubert Humphrey Fellow at UC Davis, Bolivian NGO Consultant.
Bolivia is particularly vulnerable to the negative effects of climate change. This workshop reflected on the essence behind two ideas: "Vivir Bien" and the protection of "Mother Earth." At the same time, most rural and indigenous communities face daily challenges adapting to climate change, including the melting of their glaciers, and they still need to make a living out of the resources available, including mining and extraction of fossil fuels. Special attention to the main challenges from both the government and the society levels are presented.
