Three new CED training programs launched in 2011, specifically designed for traditional indigenous leaders and municipal officials. The programs are running in Viacha, Oruro, and Ocuri. Each program has about 35 participants, and will run for six months.
These programs were requested by leaders in these communities, as they are currently undergoing processes of becoming autonomous municipalities and territories, and need to plan for sustainable economic development and contribute to municipal development plans.
Travelling to major cities for training is costly and time consuming, so for these programs, the CED instructors will go to the communities to train ‘in situ’.
