The UK Government is committed to supporting the development of Women, Peace and Security National Action Plans (NAP) across the world. Whilst Colombia is not a NAP focus country, it is a FCDO Human Rights Priority country and a focus country in the Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict Initiative (PSVI) Strategy, through which we are providing support to help Colombia develop its first National Action Plan. This is in addition to our support through the Conflict, Stability and Security Fund (CSSF), which has provided £74 million since 2015 to support the implementation of the Peace Agreement in Colombia and improve stability and security.
