From snow-capped peaks to lush rain forests, Bolivia’s diverse geography is breath-taking, but its vast and rugged terrain also poses challenges as authorities prepare for and respond to emergencies.

Climate change is also accelerating glacial melting in the Andes and the consequent water runoff is threatening the livelihoods of remote indigenous communities.
