This note is a summary of a report that
considers urban areas as the complement to rural areas that
will allow the Plurinational State of Bolivia to achieve the
goals set forth in its Patriotic Agenda for the Bicentennial
2025. The report uses data available at the national level
from censuses and household surveys from the National
Statistics Institute (INE) and the Social and Economic
Policy Analysis Unit of the Ministry of Development Planning
(UDAPE) to provide a first approximation to: (i) identify
opportunities that urban areas present to achieve the
objectives of the Patriotic Agenda regarding the reduction
of poverty and universal coverage of basic services; (ii)
understand and overcome the challenges that the expansion of
urban areas present, and understand the growth dynamics of
different types of cities; (iii) review the institutional
framework and planning tools currently available for urban
development; and (iv) provide suggestions for future
analysis. However, due to limitations of the available data,
the report does not include an economic analysis of urban
areas nor an in-depth analysis of issues at city level. It
is expected that the results of the report can inform the
projects that the Government of Bolivia is developing and
implementing in cooperation with the World Bank and other
partners, such as improving national data, urban labor
markets, poverty and informality, and investment for
infrastructure in cities.
