Colombia, historically, has presented significant humanitarian Challenges. An internal conflict that as extender for more than 60 years, with a Peace Agreement with the main illegal armed group signed 4 years ago but with significant challenges in its implementation, and new and different illegal armed groups conformed, still causes significant affectation to Colombian population through confinement, internal displacement and social leaders killings, affecting more than 80,000 people during 2020. These, added to a huge inequality and poverty conditions, and lack of access to basic services such as health, safe water, education and electricity, and historical risk related to natural disasters given the geographic characteristics of the country and lack of urban planning.
