INESAD and the First National Dialogue on Green and Inclusive Growth in Bolivia

Dr. Luis Carlos Jemio, Senior Researcher of INESAD, participated in the First National Dialogue on Green and Inclusive Growth in Bolivia, hosted by the Center of Investigation, Empowerment, and Technical Assistance – Latin America (CICATAL).

Dr. Jemio’s presentation dealt with the creation of a Prospective Agenda for Balanced Growth in Bolivia, which investigates the different scenarios that Bolivia could face in the future, taking into account outlooks in the areas of demography, economy, society, environment, and technology. The Prospective Agenda seeks to find the bottlenecks that can hinder the sectorial and global goals for future development in the country, and for this it is necessary to anticipate the necessary policies and strategies to resolve potential issues. The concept of Balanced Growth is connected to the necessity of the country to develop in all areas in a balanced manner, so that there does not exist lags in certain fundamental areas that would affect the overall development of the country.
