Colombia: Humanitarian Dashboard (as of 31 December 2016)


Situation Overview

Major humanitarian challenges persist. Violence committed by non-state armed groups, including those formed after the paramilitaries’ demobilization, continues to cause significant humanitarian and protection needs. Civilians in urban and rural areas alike continue to suffer the plight of forced displacement, restricted movement, limited access to basic goods and services, social and territorial control, gender-based violence, forced recruitment and use of children and adolescents, death threats, selective homicides and human rights violations.
