Strengthening Bolivia’s Negotiation Capacity in the Context of Climate Change & Clean Development Mechanism Negotiations

A Negotiation Capacity Building project was implemented in Bolivia in 2000-2001 as part of the National Strategy Study (NSS) of the World Bank. The goal of the NSS Study was to strengthen Bolivia’s participation in the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) of the Kyoto Protocol. The subsequent Negotiation Capacity Building project was intended as a further strengthening of Bolivian negotiators’ skills and competencies within the context of the Kyoto Protocol negotiations and the related CDM mechanisms, as well as to strengthen these abilities in other Bolivian public officials not yet integrated in these negotiations and to facilitate their participation into the teamwork of the Bolivian negotiation delegation.

The Negotiation Capacity Building project was financed by the World Bank and the State Secretariat of Economic Affairs (SECO), Switzerland.
