Voluntary Guidelines for Land Governance FAO case study executed in Colombia based on Working With People
Research Areas
  • Planification,
  • Rural development
The conflict of more than 50 years in Colombia, is caused mostly by land (territory, water, and resources in the same space) dispute, which has become one of the biggest obstructions to achieve peace in the country. This the reason why the Colombian government decided to implement the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure (VGGT), alongside The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the European Union (E.U), through development of peace regional Programs and Projects. The present document studies how the implementation of the VGGT improved the land governance process in the country, enabled to dampen the conflict and encouraged people in the international competencies of the International Project Management Association (IPMA) framework, by analyzing it based on the integrated knowledge of ?Working With People? (WWP). All of this, considering the workshop carried out by the FAO. Results show that the application of VGGT, based on the WWP framework, has potential to solve rural development conflicts in Colombia. Despite the promising results, the society does not take any actions for improvements. ?Working With People? is a way to create trust in stakeholders, improve their competences and harmonize the importance of respecting legitimate land rights between them
