The national farmers' organization (Confederacion Sindical Única de Trabajadores Campesinos de Bolivia-CSUTCB) was established in 1979 and is one of the largest social organizations, with regional and local branches throughout the country. They work to strengthen popular organizations and their influence in the preparation of laws and national development policies.
Management of natural resources such as gas, soil and water, indigenous rights and the strengthening of democratic development are central. The Indian Farmers Movement supports President Evo Morales and his government. Unlike previously, the indigenous population are now well represented in the National Assembly. Norwegian People's Aid has cooperated with CSUTSB since 2005, but the cooperation with the county organization in Cochabamba FSUTCC started already in the period 1985-1993. Norwegian People's Aid also supports county organizations of the National Peasant Movement in Cochabamba (FSUTCC), Chuquisaca (FUTPOCH) and Santa Cruz (FSUTCAT-SC).
