WFP programmes in Bolivia are among the most innovative in Latin America and are implemented within the country’s most vulnerable populations. Programmes are possible with the assistance of WFP’s governmental counterparts, primarily in remote and vulnerable municipalities, with the objective of reducing this high vulnerability. WFP’s VAM Analyses in Bolivia aims to identify the most vulnerable areas to improve the targeting of investments and decision-making within the social policy of the government. The main challenge WFP in Bolivia faces is funding: with less money there is less food to distribute, which means there are fewer people assisted.

Through Food for Assets and Vouchers for Work programmes, a WFP emergency operation in Bolivia's El Chaco region managed to rehabilitate livelihoods, ensure food safety and prevent the massive migration of 10,000 indigenous families affected by climate change and whose livelihoods depend on agricultural production. Through the first programme, Vouchers for Work, communities work on the rehabilitation of the villages and crop fields in exchange for food vouchers. The second programme, Food for Assets,  is implemented in areas with low food availability and the beneficiaries receive food in exchange for their work. WFP plans to introduce new technology and will begin using electronic vouchers.
