1. NO POVERTY

Bolivia has made substantial progress towards this goal during the last few decades, as the extreme poverty rate has fallen steadily from 29.7% in 2000 to 6.8% in 20141.

General poverty has also fallen substantially, from 66.4% in 2000 to 38.6% in 20152, but more than a third of the population still live below the national poverty line.

Identifying and removing the remaining critical obstacles for people to permanently escape poverty is important for Bolivia.
