Department of State: Peace and Security for Colombian Women in Post-Accord Colombia

Deadline: 9 August 2016

The U.S. Embassy Bogota announces an open competition for organizations interested in submitting applications for projects entitled “Peace and Security for Colombian Women in Post-Accord Colombia” that address the need to engage and support women, peace, minorities, and vulnerable populations through inclusive social, economic, political, leadership, and health programs, to promote women’s participation in post-accord Colombia.

Women in Colombia are victims of domestic violence, gender, and sexual-based violence, as well as forced displacement. They often lack equal access to basic social, economic, political, and property rights, especially in rural and minority communities.

Following the initiation of peace negotiations between the Colombian government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) in Havana, the government appointed two women sub-commission participants in 2013. Presently, one female sub-commission representative remains on the team. The Colombian government also approved the participation of a female FARC representative in the talks.

In 2014, government and FARC negotiators established a gender subcommittee comprised of representatives from both sides, which reviews all agenda items to ensure the agreements take gender-based perspectives into consideration.

Funding Information: The estimated total program funding is $722,000.
