Peace and Coca Compete in Colombia's Periphery
Description: One of the most pressing security threats after the FARC peace agreement was signed is the fighting between armed groups trying to gain control over territories and illegal activities, such as coca production, which was previously dominated by the FARC. In this video, Senior Analyst for Colombia Kyle Johnson and Latin America Program Director Ivan Briscoe highlight main findings of Crisis Group's report "Colombia’s Armed Groups and the Fight for the Spoils of Peace".

"Hacking" the Peace Process: Challenges and Opportunities in Post-Accord Colombia
Description: Nearly a year ago, Colombia’s government and the FARC guerrilla group signed a historic peace accord ending 52 years of fighting. The FARC has since disarmed, a ceasefire has largely held, and talks have begun with the smaller ELN guerrillas. Implementing the November 2016 accord, though, may be harder than negotiating it was. Progress on many fronts has been halting and frustrating. Three panels on October 16 will discuss aspects of Colombia’s post-accord reality, determining what is running well, what needs to be “hacked,” and what may need a total reboot. Each panel will last one hour and forty-five minutes. There will be a 45-minute lunch address. A simple lunch will be provided. Simultaneous translation will be available.

COLOMBIA | "From that moment, my life completely changed"
Description: Betty was suffering with post-traumatic stress. She had seen her neighbour murdered and this had triggered a psychotic depression. When she began to receive help from MSF, she didn’t know where she was, or what day it was. She had not left the house in days. She could not take public transport because she was afraid that the people around her were going to harm her. But through her sessions with Dr Yeni, Betty learned to understand and control these thoughts and feelings. Yeni gave her tips on how to control my emotions, and how to get rid of all the things that were affecting her. Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international, independent, medical humanitarian organisation that delivers emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural disasters and exclusion from healthcare.

Improving the lives of western Colombia’s indigenous Emberra communities
Description: Colombia’s ongoing conflict and violence has caused 345 271 new forced displacements in the past 2 years alone. Indigenous communities are often the first victims. The EU and its humanitarian partner the Lutheran World Federation are providing assistance to the Emberra Dovida indigenous community – from western Colombia’s Chocó rainforest – which lives in remote villages that can only be reached by an 11-hour boat trip. Emberra communities live on the banks of the isolated Bebara river, and have suffered from both the armed conflict and from floods which recurrently destroy crops and settlements. The Lutheran World Federation is supporting the Emberra Dovida in designing new ways to prevent the damage of floods and the loss of crops, so as to improve food security. This Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) project ensures families have enough food to last the entire year, regardless of the region’s extreme weather patterns. The project contributes to the communities' resilience so that they remain in their ancestral territories despite the ongoing violence, and get better access to safe drinking water and improved food crops.
