The Magdalena River Basin has historically been exploited to support economic development, resulting in significant environmental deterioration. In addition, the watershed is extremely vulnerable to climate events, as evidenced by the floods caused by La Niña in 2010-2011, which affected over 2.2 million people. Extreme climate events are expected to be stronger and more intense in the future due to climate change.

In this context, USAID and The Nature Conservancy (TNC) implemented the Ecosystem-Based Adaptation in the Magdalena River Basin activity from September 2013 - March 2017.  In order to support the ecosystem’s ability to continue providing key services and benefits to Colombia, the activity was designed to improve the watershed’s resilience and adaptation capacity to climate variability and climate change.

USAID’s Inclusion for Peace Activity (IPA) aims to foster the social and economic inclusion of Afro-Colombian and indigenous communities that have been disproportionally affected by the conflict as a means to advance peace and reconciliation in Colombia.  IPA implements a cross-cutting and integrated approach that recognizes the specific necessities, interests, and realities of the Afro-Colombian and indigenous people with respect to disability, gender, sexual orientation, and age.  IPA is implemented by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) in nine departments (Antioquia, Bolivar, Cauca, Chocó, Cundinamarca, Guaviare, La Guajira, Nariño, and Valle del Cauca) and runs from November 2016 – November 2020.
