Colombia: Resilience Programme (2017-2020)

Colombia: Resilience Programme (2017-2020)
Jul 2017

After more than 50 years of internal armed conflict, Colombia is experiencing a moment of hope thanks to the Peace Agreement between the Government of Colombia and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia ‒ People’s Army (Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia – Ejército del Pueblo [FARC‒EP]).

Within this context, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) has designed a strategy, called “Estrategia de Acompañamiento de FAO a la Implementación del Acuerdo de Paz en Colombia” in line with the Peace Agreement and its implementation in Colombia. This defines the concrete objectives in order to implement what was established in the 2015‒2019 Country Programming Framework. Within this framework, the Resilience Programme emphasizes all aspects related to resilience building as the main strategy in post-conflict scenarios and areas where natural disasters are recurrent.
