2012 kündigte die Regierung Verhandlungen zur Beilegung des Konflikts mit der «Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia» (FARC) an. Dieser Prozess führte zur Annahme von Gesetzesinitiativen wie dem Gesetz zur Landrückgabe an die Opfer dieses Konflikts. Diese Verhandlungen wurden auf nationaler und internationaler Ebene begrüsst. Es gibt jedoch auch Gruppierungen, die sie ablehnen. Die organisierte Gewalt bleibt also auf der Tagesordnung in Kolumbien. Die Aktivitäten der DEZA konzentrieren sich in erster Linie auf die schwierige humanitäre Lage der vom Konflikt betroffenen Bevölkerung. Die allgemeine Strategie der DEZA sieht einen Beitrag an den Prozess zur Beilegung des Konflikts und zur Wiederversöhnung vor. Dabei kommen verschiedene Kooperationsformen zum Tragen: bilaterale und multilaterale Partnerschaften sowie direkte Aktionen.

Humanitäre Hilfe

Grunddienstleistungen für die Bevölkerung, die vom Konflikt betroffen ist

Die humanitäre Nothilfe deckt die Grundbedürfnisse der vom Konflikt betroffenen Bevölkerung. Dazu gehören in erster Linie der Zugang zu Trinkwasser, die Ernährungssicherheit und die Grundversorgung, die für den Lebensunterhalt unerlässlich sind. Gleichzeitig werden auch die institutionellen und organisatorischen Kapazitäten gestärkt, damit sich alle am Wiederversöhnungsprozess beteiligen können. Die DEZA ist besonders aktiv im ländlichen Raum.

Schutz der Opfer des Konflikts: Rückgabe von Grund und Boden

Das 2011 verabschiedete Gesetz zur Landrückgabe enthält verschiedene Schutzmechanismen zugunsten der Zivilbevölkerung. Sie orientieren sich am «Do-no-harm»-Ansatz, der dafür sorgt, dass die geleistete Hilfe den Konflikt nicht zusätzlich schürt. Konkret geht es um drei Bereiche:

  • Stärkung der Institutionen
  • Entwicklung individueller Kapazitäten
  • Wissensmanagement

Das Landwirtschaftsministerium ist mit der Umsetzung des Gesetzes beauftragt und orientiert sich dabei an diesen drei Bereichen. Fachliche Unterstützung erhält es von der nationalen Universität Kolumbiens und der amerikanischen Organisation «CDA-Collaborative Learning Projects».

Engagement in fragilen Kontexten und Prävention von Gewaltkonflikten

Wasser

Den gefährdeten Bevölkerungsgruppen den Zugang zu Wasser gewährleisten sowie das Wasser- und Abwassermanagement verbessern

Die Bevölkerung, namentlich in ländlichen Gebieten, hat Anrecht auf einen nachhaltigen Zugang zu Wasser und zu sanitären Einrichtungen. Im Rahmen einer öffentlich-privaten Partnerschaft führten schweizerische und kolumbianische Unternehmen Untersuchungen über den Wasserverbrauch der Haushalte durch. Die Ergebnisse dieser Studien dienten als Grundlage für die Ausarbeitung eines Pilotprojekts zur Förderung eines besseren Wassermanagements. Die Erkenntnisse aus der Pilotphase ermöglichten die Durchführung einer zweiten Phase und eine Erweiterung des Projekts auf sieben kolumbianische Grossunternehmen. Das Projekt wird vom nationalen Zentrum für saubere Produktion (CNPP) koordiniert.

Geschichte der Zusammenarbeit

Von der humanitären Hilfe zur Transitionsunterstützung

2001 eröffnete die DEZA mit einem humanitären Programm ein Büro in Bogota. Ziel war die Verbesserung der Lebensbedingungen der vom bewaffneten Konflikt betroffenen Bevölkerung.

Protection of children and youth affected by armed violence and/or natural disasters, in the municipalities of Tierralta and Puerto Libertador (Córdoba)

15.02.2017 - 14.02.2020

The history of Colombia has been strongly affected by the omnipresence of armed conflict and violence. Even with the implementation of the peace agreement with the FARC, armed violence is expected to persist due to the presence of other non-state armed actors, especially in peripheral regions and poor urban areas. Several regions will remain affected by violence and human rights violations (i.e. social control by armed groups, limitation on mobility and access, use and recruitment of minors, sexual gender-based violence, threats, extortions), which requires protection and preventive actions for the affected populations. In addition, in rural and urban areas of Córdoba, the access to safe water and sanitation services is limited due to absence of state actors, which increase the vulnerability of the population.
