The objective of this technical cooperation is to increase opportunities and socioeconomic benefits and reduce poverty for communities in areas of influence of mining activity, especially the communities of San Cristóbal, Culpina K, Vila Vila and Río Grande, located in the municipality of Colcha K, Province of Nor Lípez, Department of Potosí, Bolivia. The aim is to promote a sustainable and self-managed local economic development model with participation from different economic sectors, promoted by local actors. Specifically, the program will help maximize access to the labor market and local goods and services through a sustainable intervention that builds capacity in local, public and private actors. It will be carried out through the (i) development of a strategy of sustainable development of the local business ecosystem, in the light of an analysis of gaps and opportunities and the participation of local actors; and (ii) direct and indirect support to local companies, associations, and government entities, combining "on-site" and group technical assistance and the establishment of mechanisms to improve access to operating and investment capital.
