With its rich biodiversity, Bolivia's microcosm is very vulnerable to climate change. The country is shaped by three main natural areas which are the Altiplano (high plateaus situated at more than 3000 meters above the sea) and several mountain chains, the Granc Chaco (huge plains) and the tropical forest.

Strongly impacted by the effects of climate change (droughts, melting of glaciers, flooding, lake of water, soil erosion, deforestation, regular and stronger natural disasters…) but also due to its history of a plurinational State based on several native peoples (two-third of its population), the exploration of Bolivia seemed to be a great opportunity to see the reality of climate change while learning about a new relationship with nature thanks to traditions and knowledge from these small communities.
