This project improves the social and economic living conditions of women and men in areas affected by extractive industry activity in Colombia. The project promotes the recovery of the rural economy in Colombia via three programming components: 1) strengthening the capacity of small-scale agricultural and forestry producers to increase production via extension activities and connection to value chains; 2) strengthening the management and business capacity of agricultural producer cooperatives and associations and; 3) supporting local stakeholders (including municipalities and the private sector) in revitalizing agricultural extension systems and improving the business enabling environment. As a result of this project, over 3000 family enterprises will be made more competitive and women in particular will have increased access to and control of natural and economic resources

Expected results 

The intermediate outcomes of this project include: Improved sustainable competitiveness of farms agro-forestry-pastoral and their associative enterprises in which women have greater access and control over natural and economic resources; Improving access to local, regional or international markets for agro-forestry-pastoral farms through their associative enterprises; Increased integration of key stakeholders (eg, companies in the extractive sector, municipal and departmental authorities) in support farms agro-forestry-pastoral and their associative enterprises in value chains identified.
