Bolivia does not significantly contribute to the emissions causing global warming (its contribution is around 0.03%), as the highly industrialized countries do –which should compensate countries that have low emissions of greenhouse gases. However, Bolivia shares responsibility by not avoiding increased deforestation and allowing the burning of extensive regions

Bolivia contributes to global climate change with approximately 0.03%, due to deforestation
. In 2008, deforestation in Bolivia was estimated at 300,000 hectares per year, or the equivalent of destroying forests the size of 43 football fields per hour
. This is due primarily to non sustainable practices in agriculture, forestry, mining, oil and human settlements.
