Colombia’s peace process lacks major funding, says government

Wednesday, November 1, 2017

Much of the funding destined for Colombia’s peace process with the FARC is either not yet secured, or will have to come from the country’s budget on an annual basis, according to a government report obtained by newspaper El Colombiano.

The report, from Colombia’s High Council for the Post-conflict, estimates that implementing the peace accord with the former FARC rebel group will cost Colombia around $42.5 billion over a 15-20 year period.
