    Internal displacement in Colombia has
    become more prevalent and serious. Expulsion of land users
    to gain territorial control is increasingly a tactical
    element in the conflict. High land inequality makes it
    easier to uproot populations. Providing assistance to
    displaced populations does not reduce their propensity to
    return. Together with other measures, a land policy that
    increases tenure security for those at risk of displacement,

    The efficiency and productivity of
    Colombia's urban system will be a key determinant in
    the ability of the country to transition from a middle
    income to a higher-income economy. Colombia, as with most
    Latin American countries, has experienced positive growth
    rates in the past few years, mitigating the potential
    adverse impacts of the global financial crisis. High
    commodity prices as well as improvements in macroeconomic

    This paper studies the use of labor
    markets to mitigate the impact of violent shocks on
    households in rural areas in Colombia. It examines changes
    in the labor supply from on-farm to off-farm labor as a
    means of coping with the violent shock and the ensuing
    redistribution of time within households. It identifies the
    heterogeneous response by gender. Because the incidence of
    violent shocks is not exogenous, the analysis uses

    This country note briefly summarizes
    information relevant to both climate change and agriculture
    in Colombia, with focus on policy developments (including
    action plans and programs) and institutional make-up. Like

    national communication to the United Nations Framework
    Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) with a second one

    The analysis of the cost of
    environmental degradation conducted as part of the country
    environmental analysis (CEA) shows that the most costly
    problems associated with environmental degradation are urban
    and indoor air pollution; inadequate water supply,
    sanitation, and hygiene; natural disasters (such as flooding
    and landslides); and land degradation. The burden of these
    costs falls most heavily on vulnerable segments of the

    As the use of Payments for Environmental Services (PES) approaches in developing countries has grown, concern has arisen over the ability of poorer households to participate. This paper uses data from a PES project implemented in Quindio, Colombia, to examine the extent to which poorer households that are eligible to participate are in fact able to do so. The project provides a strong test of the ability of poorer households to participate in a PES program as it required participants to make substantial and complex land use changes.
