City Profile

La Paz (officially known as Nuestra Señora de la Paz) is the capital of the Department of La Paz and seat of the Government of the Plurinational State of Bolivia. Its name commemorates the restoration of peace after the civil war that followed the insurrection of Gonzalo Pizarro against Blasco Nuñez Vela, First Viceroy of Peru. The city was founded the 20 October 1548 by the Spanish Captain Alonso de Mendoza, as a restplace for travelers going between Potosí and Cuzco.
The SDG Agenda of La Paz is an exercise to localise the SDGs and to show the city’s commitment to meet the 2030 Agenda. It does so by linking its current planning strategies and its public policies with the 17 SDGs. In this regard, it is worth noting the importance of the statistical analysis stemming from the “SDGs Municipal Survey – 2018” (Encuesta Municipal ODS – 2018).
