Colombia faces persistent humanitarian needs resulting from the impact of armed conflict and violence, combined with natural disasters in certain areas. While armed conflict continues between the government and the guerrilla groups (FARC-EP and ELN), other sources of violence such as post-demobilization armed groups (PDAGs) , pose major humanitarian and protection challenges.
It is important to note that, in the particular complexity of the Colombian humanitarian context, in emergency situations caused by natural disasters and/or armed conflict, women, girls and boys, people with disabilities and the elderly are particularly vulnerable.
