Audit of USAID/Bolivia’s Integrated Alternative Development Program.

Country: Bolivia
Fiscal Year: 2011
Agency: USAID

Since the 1980s, Bolivia has been a major producer of cocaine; in addition, the country serves as a major transshipment point for narcotics from Peru and other South American countries. Combating international narcotics production and trafficking in Bolivia is a key component of the U.S. national drug control strategy.

In support of this strategy, the USAID/Bolivia initiated a program that includes interdiction, eradication, demand reduction, law enforcement training, and alternative development. To support this strategy, USAID's Integrated Alternative Development Program attempts to diversify the economies of coca-growing regions, strengthen productive capacities, improve access to essential social services, and improve rural road infrastructure.

This audit will determine whether USAID/Bolivia’s Integrated Alternative Development Program is providing alternatives to reduce communities’ dependence on coca as an income source and establish a sustainable basis for long-term growth.
