Las zonas de reserva campesina: Retos y experiencias significativas en su implementación

The document is the result of a technical cooperation agreement between the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and the National Land Agency. It presents the results of an intermediate evaluation of the Peasant Reserve Zones legally established in Colombia, providing guidelines to strengthen and dynamize this legal figure in the context of rural development policies. Through the revision of the historical context and the legal and institutional framework, and using primary and secondary information, this evaluation examines the challenges related to governance, including institutional and organizational actors, the application of normativity and the design of sustainable productive projects. This study provides an insight of the close relation between the implementation of the Peasant Reserve Zones and the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in Colombia. It includes a description of multiple challenges and experiences developed in the territories in order to propose policy recommendations and guidelines related to responsible governance, the implementation of the peace agreements and the inclusive and participatory process of decision making in the context of territorial rural development in the country.
