Sustainable Caqueteño regions for Peace
Consolidating peace in Colombia through strengthening post-conflict socioeconomic and environmental development in the Amazon.
From 01/Jan/2018 To 30/Jun/2022
The Project consolidates regional peace in Caquetá through improving local capacities for production, processing, and commercialization of products such as cacao, non-wood forest products, sugar cane, and coffee, profitably and competitively, under environmental conservation and social inclusion schemes. The project also seeks to promote reconciliation by strengthening the social fabric and community work. The Portuguese Institute for Development Support and the IMVF contribute their extensive international experience in rural development and tropical agriculture, strengthening of civil society and institutions, as well as agro-industry and association. The Adelco Network contributes its extensive experiance in promoting local economic development.
The project focuses on 3 lines:
i) Legal and sustainable economies, market-oriented sustainable production, regional food sovereignty, and added value
ii) Regional governance for peace, strengthening institutional capacities for rural development,
iii) Public goods for social inclusion: road infrastructure, access to goods and services, and economic and social infrastructure.
Contribution to the Peace Accourds
The project contributes to point 1 of the Agreement by creating an Amazonian model based on food production, resilience to climate change, and the development of commercialization processes. These actions are implemented with the community’s participation, promoting and strengthening crops with the greatest potential, under highly technified and sustainable schemes, to ensure agrifood supply in the region. The project strengthens institutional capacities for rural development.
The project contributes to point 3.2 of the Agreement by supporting social and economic reincorporation of ex-combatants under a regional development approach in the ETCR Agua Bonita (La Montañita), through economic initiatives and the strengthening of regional governance.
Objectives and Results
● The first objective is the implementation of an Andean-Amazonian model. This food-producing and resilient to climate change model aims at creating income for families, offering alternatives to coca growing, and protecting the ecosystem.
● The second objective is the commercialization of cacao and other leading products at the local, national, and international level, through agro-industrial processing and added value.
● As a third objective, the project strengthens local institutional capacities for rural development and regional peace in La Montañita and El Paujil, improving governance and competencies with a focus on gender and community resilience.
● The fourth objective focuses on creating local organizations led by women and community action organizations.
● The fifth objective is providing rehabilitated and / or adapted rural public goods under community schemes.
