Under the coordination of Centro Boliviano de Estudios Multidisciplinarios (CEBEM), support for municipal management of indigenous communities was chosen as a key project objective in Bolivia. CEBEM signed a cooperation agreement with the Municipality of Jesus de Machaca to develop a research project, together with the indigenous authorities, to strengthen institutions and spread their experiences. Although the European Union (EU) project has ended, a series of activities continue in the shape of collaboration between CEBEM and the municipality with the aim of identifying steps for collaboration, investments, webpage development and intercultural dialogues through the Intercultural Relations Platform. EU-funded project was approved by the indigenous peoples, peasants and Aboriginals of three countries: Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia. The general objective of the project was to build capacity for territorial management on the part of the authorities and their organizations.
