Capacity Development and Advisory Services
DPAD has been implementing capacity development and advisory activities in Bolivia since 2006. The main objectives of these activities are to develop the capacity of policymakers to undertake quantitative analyses and to design more effective macroeconomic and social policies that increase the level of human development and ensure that meeting development goals is sustainable beyond 2015.
Capacity development in Bolivia was implemented with support from the Social and Economic Policy Analysis Unit (UDAPE) of the Ministry of Economic Development in Bolivia. The United Nations Development Program (UNDP) in Bolivia and the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) have also been key partners in funding and logistical support. The World Bank provided technical assistance during the implementation of capacity development projects.
