The Women of Isoso: Livelihoods, Governance and Natural Resources in the Gran Chaco, Bolivia. This TransLinks case study builds on over 15 years of experience of an indigenous terrirorial organization and an international NGO (Wildlife Conservation Society) working collaboratively in the weastern Bolivia lowlands to put in place durable mechanisms for economic development through sustainable community-based management of natural resources. Among the outcomes of this collaboration, the Isoso Guarani, in negotiations with the Bolivian State, established the Kaa Iya National Park and the Isoso Comunitaria de Origen (TCO) within the larger Gran Chaco area of Bolivia. The case documents the evolution of the role of women within the Isosonyo indigenous peoples' organization CABI, and their growing influence on the governance of natural resources for sustainable economic development within the Isosenyo TCO. This initiative received USAID/Bolivia funding from 1995 to 2003.
