We have responded to help people impacted by severe flooding in Bolivia in 2011 and 2014.

We also sent a team after flooding in 2018.

Where is Bolivia?

Bolivia is a landlocked country in South America. It shares borders with Brazil to the north and east, Paraguay to the south east, Argentina to the south, Chile to the south west and Peru to the north west.

Bolivia is particularly vulnerable to the effects of El Niño. This can bring extreme weather such as flooding. The country is also being affected by the climate crisis, with some working in agriculture struggling.
