About Colombia

Colombia is a middle-income country and one of the oldest democracies in Latin America. However, it has endured nearly half a century of intense armed conflict, perpetuated by widespread illegal drug production and trafficking.

Longstanding violence and instability is rooted in territorial control by illegal armed groups and terrorist organizations, and a large internally displaced population. In response, the Government of Colombia is working to re-establish state control in various areas through a phased approach combining security, counter-narcotics, and economic and social development.

USAID supports government and citizen efforts in Colombia to promote economic prosperity through the licit economy; improve the living conditions of victims of violence and vulnerable groups, including Afro-Colombians and indigenous peoples; promote respect for human rights and rule of law; and address climate change and environmental issues in one of the most ecologically diverse countries in the world.
