​In Colombia, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office allocates funding to Conflict Serurity and Stability Fund programmes, Prosperity Fund programmes, and to smaller interventions under the International Programme. Our programmes in Colombia are designed to advance Foreign and Commonwealth Office and wider UK Government policy objectives, including achieving the UN's Sustainable Development Goals. Programme funds deliver against a range of policy objectives for example assisting Colombian human rights defenders; supporting implementation of the peace deal; tackling serious organised crime; and supporting institutions, infrastructure, and agricultural development in the country's post conflict and conflict-affected regions.
