The project ‘Improving durable solutions and peacebuilding through Human Security Business Partnerships in post‐Peace Agreement Colombia’ aims to improve human security conditions for vulnerable population groups, through increasing the participation of the private sector in ZOMAC territories (most affected zones by the armed conflict), and aim to generate positive impact as a result of its presence in terms of durable solutions, and strengthening peacebuilding processes. The project has a duration of 2 years (2019-2021). It will focus on urban and semi-urban zones in the departments of Nariño (Tumaco and El Charco) and Antioquia (Bello, Dabeiba and Ituango).
