    Although many of the problems that Cali
    is experiencing - social and human capital deterioration, a
    declining economy, and institutional crisis - are a
    reflection of Colombia's complicated socioeconomic
    situation, the city has been hit harder by the crisis than
    other large cities, as confirmed by the following
    indicators: GDP, unemployment, poverty rate, inequality, and
    number of homicides. According to recent estimates, the

    The purpose of this study is to assess
    agriculture's competitiveness in Colombia. During the

    Unequal land distribution and the
    negative social and economic implications resulting from
    such polarization in Colombia have long been of concern to
    policymakers. A 1950 World Bank mission identified unequal
    land distribution as a key impediment to economic and social
    development in the country. Since then, a wide range of
    policies has been adopted to deal with this issue and its
    consequences. Numerous studies show that the success of

    land transactions were all of a short-term nature and that
    little land was transferred from very large to small land
    owners or the landless suggests that there may be scope for
