Scaling up of the comprehensive model of water and sanitation for promotion of territorial peace to rural areas of 6 departments of the country (ASIR-SABA)


SDC will continue, on one hand, supporting the implementation of the institutional strengthening plans in Valle and Cauca in order to guarantee the closing of processes that initiated during the phase 1. On the other hand, the scaling-up of the technical assistance model proposed by SABA will start in la Guajira, Boyacá, Antioquia and Nariño. This project aims to contribute to peacebuilding in rural territories though improving the quality of life of the rural population, through differential schemes that allow sustainable management for the provision of water and sanitation (W & S).

Hintergrund The targeted departments (Boyacá, Cauca, La Guajira, Nariño, Antioquia and Valle del Cauca) have been characterized by gaps in access to water and sanitation in rural areas and high rates of poverty. Also, have been historically affected by the armed conflict, which, despite the signature of the peace agreement with the FARC, has intensified on occasion to the reconfiguration of the other illegal armed actors which dispute territorial control and illicit economies (drug trafficking and mining) in areas of this region that were formerly influence by the FARC-EP.
In spite of the progresses on the territorial spaces for demobilization and concentration of former FARC combatants, the state response related to the implementation of the Peace Agreement has been insufficient due to operational and financial constraints. In order to advance in peacebuilding and take advantage of the Ministry of Housing’s commitment, there is an opportunity to ensure adequate and complementary interventions and to contribute to closing the gap in access to basic services and sustainable livelihoods in these rural areas.
