Insights of the Report

Cochabamba's first VLR demonstrates the city's commitment to implementing the SDGs. The city has formulated a Comprehensive Territorial Development Plan (CTDP 2021-2025) aimed at achieving SDG targets. This plan focuses on improving public services, emphasising qualities like transparency, efficiency and effectiveness, in line with the SDGs. The city links its sustainable territorial model to the SDGs, with particular attention to Goal 11. The CTDP 2021-2025 aims to impact areas such as health, education, water, electricity, innovation and urban planning. The CTDP comprises four pillars: governance, human development, urban development and the environment, and sustainable and productive development. All municipal secretariats collaborated on priorities and objectives, working closely with UN-Habitat to select relevant indicators aligned with Cochabamba's local context and strategic criteria. The VLR process ensures regular monitoring of these indicators based on available local data.
