The European Union supports sustainable development and peace building in Colombia

Social Affairs, Local development, Humanitarian, Environment,-,

News The European Union commits to promote better quality of life for Colombians to peace building and to equal sustainable development for all. Thus new projects worth 14,3 million euro were signed.

These projects, funded by European Development Fund (EDF), will be implemented by Colombian civil society organisations and will help to strengthen their capacity to contribute to democratic governance, overcome poverty and support equal and sustainable development. 

For instance, two projects will help to better connect humanitarian aid and development support, while another programme seeks to improve public planning in municipalities, as many of these are located in historical conflict zones and are facing challenges to overcome social inequalities. 

The projects will reach a total of 355 organisations and around 1.7 million participants in Antioquia, Bolivar, Cauca, Caquetá, Chocó, Meta, Nariño, Tolima, Putumayo, Valle del Cauca and Bogotá
