Many family farmers in Colombia have few options for improving their production and marketing their agricultural products. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Colombia in a way that protects the natural resources on which communities depend. Corporación Buen Ambiente (Corambiente) is working with more than 70 organizations in the departments of Santander and Valle del Cauca to strengthen the production, marketing, and consumption of environmentally-friendly foods. Corambiente’s activities promote smallholder agriculture and food production to enhance food security and ensure meaningful, licit opportunities for communities to thrive.
This grant is part of our broader initiative that supports grassroots organizations to build a just and lasting peace in Colombia.
