The project is located in a region of Colombia where several converging factors are slowing down the development: the effects of the armed conflict (social disruption, landmines), absence of State authority and environmental fragility (forest reserves or protected areas make up the greater part of the department). Pointed out as a priority to the Trust Fund by the Colombian government, this region is one of the key areas of the Peace agreement, involving substantial presence of illicit crops and the creation of two territorial land areas for the reincorporation of former combatants having laid down their arms.
Result 1: Property planning and land-use planning
A regional platform for planning and monitoring adapted to the Guaviare context will be provided for local players (governments and organisations from the civil society). 400 families will also join the process of property planning.
Result 2: Improved food and nutrition security
Improving food security, nutritive conditions, access to drinking water and basic nutrition care for 400 families.
Result 3: Sustainable production systems
Implementation of alternative production methods on 600 parcels or community areas, which will combine conservation, restoration and increased productivity on already deforested areas to stabilise the agricultural frontier, with a participation of young people and rural women.
Result 4: Communication and education for territorial development
Local players (especially education institutions, young people and parents) are encouraged to join in discussions and actions concerning local challenges in matters of sustainable development and relations between rural and urban zones.
