    Country List World Factbook Home The World Factbook Bolivia Introduction Bolivia Background: Bolivia, named after independence fighter Simon BOLIVAR, broke away from Spanish rule in 1825; much of its subsequent history has consisted of a series of nearly 200 coups and counter-coups. Comparatively democratic civilian rule was established in the 1980s, but leaders have faced difficult problems of deep-seated poverty, social unrest, and drug production. Current goals include attracting foreign investment, strengthening the educational system, resolving disputes with coca growers over Bolivia's counterdrug efforts, continuing the privatization program, and waging an anticorruption campaign.

    E-Mail This Article Published on Tuesday, October 14, 2003 by the Latinamerica Press Bolivia in Crisis over Plan to Export Natural Gas to US LA PAZ, BOLIVIA Bolivia's government is in a state of crisis after four cabinet ministers resigned and the vice president denounced the government for using excessive force to quell demonstrations over the export of the country's natural gas to the United States and Mexico. Two people were killed in clashes between protestors and police in the capital, La Paz, Monday, but dozens of people have died in recent weeks as nonstop protests have been met by force from police and soldiers.
    Bolivian demonstrators march from El Alto to La Paz, October 13, 2003. Bolivia's embattled president on Monday suspended a controversial project to export natural gas to the United States, seeking to defuse a month long wave of protests as the death toll approached 40. (Jose Luis Quintana/Reuters)
    Although President Gonzalo Sanchez de Lozada refused to resign, he announced today that he will postpone plans to build the gas pipeline, at least until next year. It started with a peaceful march of thousands in major Bolivian cities on Sept. 19. Since then, the gas war has pushed Bolivia one of Latin Americas poorest countries, into a violent confrontation between marginalized classes and the right-wing government that hopes to sell natural gas to the United States.

Australians in Bolivia are advised to exercise a high degree of caution. Protest action which has continued following the civil unrest of October 2003, particularly in La Paz and western Bolivia, is likely to escalate from 1 May 2004 due to a national strike. Australians should note carefully that renewed civil unrest involving disrupted transport and communication links would greatly limit our capacity to deliver consular assistance.

    Water and GATS - case studies
    Cochabamba, Bolivia In September 1999, an international consortium that included UK companies and the infamous Bechtel was awarded a 40-year contract for the water delivery system of Cochabamba. The prices that the company imposed were so crippling that they sparked massive protests. For many families on low incomes, water ended up costing more than food. Even collecting rainwater in rooftop tanks became illegal without a permit. Hundreds of thousands took to the streets of Cochabamba to protest. Soldiers sent in to quell the protests left one person dead, two blinded and several injured. Eventually the Government accepted the protesters' demands, terminated the contract and put water delivery back into public hands. But if Bolivia is an example of where private water delivery has spectacularly failed, it is also a country where experiences of not-for-profit water delivery systems have spectacularly succeeded.

    Dear Friends: I have received numerous e-mails in the last week asking about the current situation here in Bolivia. As those of you who follow news reports about Bolivia know, the country is once again in the midst of political crisis. Rather than try to provide our readers with a day by day account of specific events, it seems more useful now to offer a larger analysis of what all this is about. The article below is an effort to do that. For those interested in ongoing reports about specific events as they unfold, I have two suggestions: 1) Send an e-mail to the Andean Information Network, a local human rights group, and ask to receive their English bulletins: 2) Check the Yahoo news page and click on the link to AP. There you can search for Bolivia and read the latest dispatches from the AP reporter in Bolivia: And for those who have asked, my family and I are just fine. My kids and other students here in Cochabamba are home from school, as local blockades start to bring our city to a halt as well. Other than the prospect of a little cabin fever with two teenagers and a baby, we are fine.

    The Blue Planet Project Cochabamba Declaration , 8 December 2000
    On December 8, 2000 several hundred people gathered in Cochabamba, Bolivia for a seminar on the global pressure to turn water over to private water corporations. For many of those who attended it was the first time they had come together since the mass uprising at the beginning of the year when the people of Cochabamba took back their water from the private water company. Also in attendance was an international delegation of water activists. The result of that meeting was the following declaration that captures the essence of their struggle and the struggle of more and more communities around the world. This declaration is a rallying call to join the struggle to protect the planet and human rights.

    SYSTEM OF GOVERNMENT: Unitary Multiparty Republic
    AREA: 1,098,579 Sq KM (424,164 Sq ML)
    ESTIMATED 2000 POPULATION CLIMATE: Bolivia has a tropical climate, although the difference in altitude produces a variety of different climatic conditions. Generally, both temperature and rainfall increase from west to east. The Altiplano is inhospitable for most of the year while the Yungas has a semitropical climate and the Llanos becomes drier to the south. The wet season is from December to January and because of the country's seasonal variations both floods and droughts are common. The prevailing winds include the rain bearing winds from the Amazon Basin and the Surazos which is a dust laden wind that blow across the plains. Average temperature ranges in La Paz are from 1 to 17 degrees Celsius (34 to 63 degrees Fahrenheit) in July to 6 to 19 degrees Celsius (43 to 66 degrees Fahrenheit) in November. PEOPLE: The principal ethnic majority are the AmerIndians who account for around 42% of the population, of which 25% are Quechua and 17% are Aymara. In addition, 32% of the population are Mestizos who are of mixed AmerIndian and Spanish descent while 15% are Whites mainly Spanish and 2% are Black Africans.

  • Sources The Bolivia - Cuiabá gas pipeline, or Rio San Miguel - Cuiabá pipeline, owned by Enron and Shell, is one of the most infamous fossil fuel transportation projects ever built in South America. The announcement in 1998 of the pipeline route through the globally renowned Chiquitano forest and indigenous ancestral lands provoked a swathe of opposition from indigenous communities, as well as Bolivian and international NGOs. As companies and financiers forced the project through the forest, escalating resistance caused delays and massive cost overruns. See Map As endeavors to mitigate damaging project impacts floundered, a storm of bad publicity shook the key project financier, the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC). Enron flouted key loan conditions laid down by OPIC for the project. Although the pipeline was completed in 2001, OPIC eventually cancelled their $200 million loan for the project in early 2002. Meanwhile a series of separate allegations over Enron's alleged illegal entrance into Bolivia enmeshed Enron and Bolivian government officials in deepening scandal and sent a new wave of furor from the Chiquitano to the heart of Washington.
