    The study responds to the need to establish the risk situation faced by poor populations in a situation of extreme vulnerability in the Bolivian Altiplano due to their exposure to a set of climatic threats. The risk could be greater to the extent that local-level institutions (municipalities and organized communities) do not necessarily have sufficient capacities to respond in a timely manner to eventual natural disasters (mainly droughts such as those observed in 2016). The study is based on the combination of statistical analysis - with data from the Population Census, household surveys, and SENAMHI registries - and qualitative evidence that results from the organization of participatory workshops with the population and with local actors in the municipalities of San Pablo de Lipez, Tomave, Santiago de Huari, Santiago de Callapa, Curahuara de Carangas and Caquiaviri.
