Reintegration Project for Demobilized Combatants in Colombia

The project aims to help reintegrate ex-combatants to civilian life in Colombia.

Socio-economic Reintegration of Colombian Ex-combatants

The Reintegration Project for Demobilized Combatants in Colombia was created in 2006 through a partnership between IOM, USAID and the Argos Cement Company. The project targets three municipalities in the northern departments of Antioquia and Sucre which host a high number of demobilized combatants. Argos and USAID each contributed $1.2 million while IOM headed the project monitoring and management as part of its support of the Colombian Government’s activities that aim to reintegrate the ex-combatants to civilian life. The project aimed to facilitate the economic and social reintegration of over 300 ex-combatants (direct beneficiaries) and another 1,600 (indirect beneficiaries).
