Description

For more than five decades the armed conflict in Colombia has generated inequalities in various territories of the country. This has enhanced the regional division between the countryside and the city, with rural municipalities being mainly the most historically affected by the conflict and the absence of the State, generating deplorable economic and social conditions for the civilian population, along with a high percentage of rural poverty and illicit economies. In addition, intense conflict, illegality, governance gaps and the inability to manage territorially have increased the processes of environmental and social degradation, putting ecosystem services, mainly water, soils and biodiversity, at risk, as well as the economic sustainability of the rural population.
