Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.
The development objective of the Second Rural Alliances Project for Bolivia is to improve accessibility to markets for small rural producers in the selected areas by: (a) promoting productive alliances between different small rural producer organizations and purchasers; (b) empowering rural producers through the establishment and strengthening of self-managed grass-root organizations; (c) increasing access to productive assets, technology, and financial services; (d) promoting more effective, responsive, and accountable service organizations at the local level; and (e)enhancing environmental sustainability of productive practices. The additional financing (AF) aims to scale up activities to enhance the impact of a project that has proven effective in improving rural income and reducing poverty in Bolivia. The AF will enable the project to reach an additional 27,825 rural households, largely indigenous, via support to approximately 768 new productive alliances. The changes include: (i) revisiting the project’s results framework and monitoring indicators matrix; (ii) expanding the project’s geographic area from 120 municipalities to all 339 municipalities of the country; (iii) the project envisions that approximately 75 percent of the monetary transfers to producers via alliances will be aligned with on-farm irrigation and water use efficiency investments, as well as support to the adoption of other climate-smart practices; (iv) financing about 48 municipal subprojects, with two-thirds of the investments supporting irrigation improvements; (v) triggering of two additional safeguard policies: projects on international waterways, and safety of dams; (vi) adjusting institutional arrangements to add fiduciary responsibilities to the productive and social investment fund (fondo de inversion productiva y social, FPS) in the implementation of sub-component 2.b.
