This plan supports Families enrolled in the Comprehensive National Program for the Substitution of Illicit Crops (PNIS) in 10 municipalities throughout the country. In Dagua, there are 200 heads of households participating in the Contingency Plan, of which 132 are women.
The participating communities identify the strategic areas in which they can focus their collective efforts in order to strengthen productive and commercial networks that offer viable alternatives to illegal economies.
The 29 ERA participants are ex-combatants organized through the Multiactive Cooperative for the development of the Northeast of Antioquia (COOMULDESNA) and have been supported by PASO Colombia in their beekeeping project since February 2019.
Twenty-five ex-combatants and three farmers from the region are the initial participants of this ERA. They will receive tailor-designed training for their needs in a central farm, where they’ll learn about food sustainability, pisciculture and livestock breeding.
