The project aims to support Afro-Colombian communities in contributing to the implementation of the Ethnic Chapter of the Colombian Peace Agreement. The Chapter provides a set of principles, safeguards and guarantees that seek to ensure the respect of Colombia’s ethnic communities’ rights and restore the rights that have been violated as a result of conflict. Project activities include: (1) advocating for the implementation of the Ethnic Chapter; (2) implementing efforts that support truth and reconciliation for Afro-Colombian women survivors; and (3) establishing gender-sensitive security safeguards in Afro-Colombian communities.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) improved security measures that incorporate an ethno-racial gender perspective in focus regions; (2) enhanced communication between Afro-Colombian organizations and authorities and transitional justice, truth and reconciliation, and historical memory mechanisms in Colombia; and (3) increased meaningful consultation in implementation processes of Afro-Colombian communities, especially women, in Colombia.
