After one year of implementation of the Peace Agreement between the Colombian government and the FARC-EP guerrilla, only 45 per cent of the 558 provisions included in the agreement present any progress (Kroc, 2017). The lack of political support of the government in Congress has delayed the approval of significant bills. At the local level, the appearance of armed groups has created new scenarios of armed violence. Between January and September 2017, over 10,142 new internally displaced persons were identified. Meanwhile, the government advances in the peace dialogue with the ELN, in a scenario of uncertainty over the government’s capacity to comply with the first agreement provisions. The above-mentioned dynamics have created significant social and political polarization with an upcoming presidential election that could jeopardize the implementation of transitional justice and post-conflict programmes. 

In the northern part of the country, continuous migration flows crossing the border because of the deteriorating political, social and economic situation in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, impose greater humanitarian needs. According to official data, 61,000 people have been crossing the border back and forth to Colombia on a daily basis since August 2017. The latest implementation of IOM’s DTM showed that over half of interviewed Venezuelan migrants in Colombia have crossed the border irregularly and almost 80 per cent don’t have immediate plans of returning to their country. The government has requested IOM to maintain a leading role in the institutional response provided to migrants and returnees in the border with the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.

IOM has been supporting the Government of Colombia in the protection of vulnerable populations, specifically victims of the armed conflict. IOM will continue strengthening the government’s capacity to enhance the implementation of the Peace Agreement and support post-conflict processes. IOM will further support national entities as well as local partners as requested in preparedness, emergency response and development. 

IOM´s leading role in the Camp Coordination and Camp Management cluster and co-leading role in the Early Recovery cluster and in the Border Working group within the Protection Cluster represent an important added value in supporting the government of Colombia. IOM supports OCHA’s inter-cluster responsibility for humanitarian action and actively participates in the UN Country Team meetings as well as the Humanitarian Country Team strategy. At the local level, IOM participates in Local Coordination Teams to promote an interagency approach to humanitarian and protection needs. 

IOM works in coordination with the Ministry of Health, Victims Unit, Colombian Reincorporation and Normalization Agency, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Colombian Family Welfare Institute, and the High Commissioner for Peace; UN agencies (including UNHCR, UNODC, OCHA, UNFPA), international cooperation agencies (USAID, Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration - PRM, UK, Sweden, The Global Fund for Aids, Malaria and Tuberculosis) and civil society organizations. 

Overall Targeted Beneficiaries: 82,933 individuals, including 35,149 members of vulnerable populations, 885 migrants and returnees, 46,467 minors and adolescents, and 432 public officers and social leaders
