COOPI has been present in the country since 1985, where it promoted the integration of the official medical system and the traditional medical system of local communities.

Our projects also focused on the protection of human rights and the fight against the exclusion of native populations, in order to foster intercultural dialogue and conflict mediation. In recent years, we have also assisted communities affected by natural disasters, working with local authorities to improve their capacity to prepare for and respond to such events.

One of our current interventions focuses on the problems of the Chipaya people, descendants of native Uru-Chipaya. We do so by following a multi-sectoral approach that includes land management and common goods; governance of public services; the enhancement of cultural heritage and local economic development through community tourism.

Recently, COOPI has supported the development of resilience strategies for the population with a particular focus on sustainability, respect and protection of the environment, in the Bolivian Chaco area,

Starting from September 2019, a new project entitled LaPazRecicla has been launched to offer an integrated approach to waste management in La Paz and promote circular economy.
