Under the presidency of Evo Morales, Bolivia has taken a leadership role in the global climate change negotiations. It did so most recently at the UN Climate Change Conference in Cancún, but also hosted the World People’s Conference on Climate Change (WPCCC) in Cochabamba in April 2010 and spoke out against the Copenhagen Accord at the 2009 UN Climate Change Conference.  Among the ideas underpinning Bolivia’s principled position - pushing for the most ambitious agreement to tackle climate change and defend “mother earth” (or Pachamama) - is that of vivir bien or “living well”.
