The Government of Colombia is making advances on a number of issues that are central toresolving the civil conflict. In 2014 it was estimated that 5.9 million internally displaced people and 262,000 confined people still needed humanitarian assistance. WFP’s presence in Colombia is the result of instability associated with the civil conflict and gaps in coverage of the Government’s assistance programmes; the Government has requested WFP’s continued support. Using a flexible strategy, WFP will prioritize internally displaced people and confined populations. Victims of violence, especially those injured by landmines or suffering from sexual and gender-based violence, will be supported through partners’ programmes. WFP’s recovery activities will target returnees, people in the process of resettlement or reintegration, ethnic groups affected by conflict and schoolchildren at risk of recruitment by armed groups.
