The situation in Colombia continues to be characterized by armed group activity as well as natural disasters, leading to increased humanitarian needs. In addition, Colombia still hosts the largest number of Venezuelan refugees and migrants, whose already dire living conditions have further been aggravated by the effects of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), and related urgent and essential restrictive measures. Providing both vulnerable host communities, and refugee and migrant populations, especially in rural areas, with agricultural support is crucial to allow them to quickly cover their food needs and increase their self-reliance.
