UNHCR and Better Shelter

After four years of negociations, the Colombian government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) signed a peace agreement in November 2016. Despite this progress towards peace, armed actors and violences continued to force internal displacement in some regions of the country. There were over 7.8 million IDPs in Columbia in 2018.
