Colombia

Economic progress and smouldering conflicts

Colombia was marked by violence and civil war for a long time as both right-wing and left-wing groups destabilised the country. The civil war has now been contained, but violence and crime continue; there are still some regions that are not under government control. Although the economy is growing dynamically, not everyone is benefiting from the progress: almost 40 % of the nearly 50 million Colombians live below the national poverty line. People in the countryside in particular see nothing of the growth. KfW Development Bank is supporting Colombia in avoiding new conflicts, furthering the peace process and preserving the country's natural biodiversity.
