The Danish Foreign Ministry has recently published the Evaluation of the Danish-Bolivia Cooperation 1994-2016.
NCG partner Louise Scheibel Smed was part of the team who, in consortium with Orbicon, assessed the specific value added of the Danish approach to supporting sustainable, rights-based development as well as providing lessons learned. NCG partner Per Kirkemann was Quality Assurer.
Overall, Danish assistance has demonstrated a relatively high degree of flexibility and ability to adapt to changing contextual circumstances and “windows of opportunity”. The major challenges in the Danish-Bolivian partnership arose in relation to the institutional support, mainly at central governmental level.
However, Danish support to the processes of decentralisation and popular participation, to education (including bilingual education) as well as to the enhancement of the rights, livelihoods and opportunities of indigenous peoples has contributed to fundamental changes in Bolivian society over the past 20 years.
