- Thematic areas
The initial work axis has been the theme of rural/urban development and
focused on the environmental-energy-basic sanitation theme,
considering that energy is a key element to achieve the sustainable
development of all sectors. TECHNOLOGIES IN DEVELOPMENT (TeD
), from a broad, supportive and active perspective, seeks to promote
greater and more rational use of energy and the environment in Bolivia,
through the diversification of supply sources and their efficient use,
contributing this way to the conservation of the environment.
The institution mainly provides technical assistance that enables target
groups to improve their initial conditions and satisfy their basic needs,
increase the standard of living and support production, promoting quality
The target group of TECHNOLOGIES IN DEVELOPMENT (TeD ) is:
- peasant families with unmet demands in terms of basic services,
energy and inadequate conditions for their productivity or way of life.
- the groups of professionals that provide services in rural and urban
- the rural and marginal urban population that can benefit from
renewable energies, basic sanitation and energy savings, by making
rational use of them.
- populations that involve coexistence with fauna and flora.
The work with the target groups is coordinated with the respective
Municipalities, associations and/or communities, seeking active

execution of 6 programs that interrelate institutional objectives and
potential with the demands of the environment. These strategic
✓ Rural Energy-Environmental Development (DER). Program
thematically concentrated on rural planning, work with rural
municipalities and the management of isolated rural energy systems.
✓ Resources and Environment Assessment (EREMA). Program
responsible for the study and evaluation of energy potentials, behavior
and performance of different end-use technologies, improvement and/or
change of technologies, etc., together with the identification, evaluation
and mitigation of environmental impacts of energy use, among them the
mitigation and physical and economic accounting of greenhouse gas
✓ Training and Promotion ( CyP ). Program that works fundamentally
on the production of information, documentation and its dissemination
in the environment, as well as on the training and development of human
resources under a selective perspective and differentiated strategies
according to the strata of interest, in the different topics developed by
TECHNOLOGIES IN DEVELOPMENT .
✓ Support for the Development of Basic Infrastructure (ADIB). This
area supports the development of basic infrastructure aimed at
improving the living conditions and productive capacities of rural
families. Particularly, it works with basic sanitation, provision of drinking
water, micro-irrigation , improvement of posts and schools, eventually
it has supported the implementation of road improvement projects and
✓ Interinstitutional Training (IC), in a multidimensional approach and
due to the process aimed at solving institutional needs, there is this area
