USAID/Colombia and leading social investor Acumen established the Investing for Peace Fund, aimed at attracting private investment to conflict affected regions. This initiative, which is Acumen's first-ever agreement with USAID, seeks to invest in pioneering enterprises that operate in conflict-affected municipalities of Colombia to generate wealth, employment and improved incomes for the rural poor. The program will deploy $4 million in financing to for-profit social enterprises that are addressing issues of extreme and multidimensional poverty. The fund will also support enterprises with targeted technical assistance to increase the likelihood of success as they scale up. As a result, USAID/Colombia expects eight investments that will directly impact at least 1,500 households (approximately 6,000 people).

After the 2010 crisis, anxiety about the 2015 election lingered and affected the thinking of many about what it would mean for Côte d’Ivoire. Would it reignite the recent conflict? Would the election be fair and transparent with credible results – both in perception and in actuality? These are the reasons why the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) partnered with the Consortium for Elections and Political Process Strengthening (CEPPS) and 14 civil society organizations to form an independent platform to provide outside verification of the credibility of the election outcome.
