The U.S. intends to provide USD30 million to support the restitution of lands to displaced persons in Colombia, according to the Colombian agriculture ministry.

The U.S. ambassador to Bogota, Peter Michael McKinley, announced the three-year funding, which will be channeled through the U.S. Agency for International Development, according to Colombia Reports.

“We support the efforts of the current government for the restitution of land and the strategy for improving marketing of agricultural products and productive efficiency,” said McKinley, according to a ministry press release.
