The indigenous people in the departments of Casanare and Vichada are threatened by encroachment on their collectively-held land. Fundación para el Etnodesarrollo de los Llanos Orientales de Colombia (Etnollano) partners with indigenous organizations and communities to protect their way of life and natural environment, and in so doing contribute to building peace. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to enhance peace and security. Etnollano’s activities encourage civic participation by marginalized groups to defend their rights, propel their own development and advocate for government accountability and transparency.
This grant is part of a broader initiative to build a just and lasting peace in Colombia.
