    Tiquipaya – Despite achieving a considerable improvement in extreme poverty rates in the last 15 years, Latin America and the Caribbean regions keep being one of the most unequals in the world.

In order to get past these different gaps which obstruct the whole development in the region, it has become necessary to foster structural changes able to promote equalities, inclusion, respect and the aknowledgement of diversities and balance between territories.

    Revirtiendo la tendencia de décadas, hoy Colombia muestra un escenario propicio para el desarrollo de procesos que estimulen la participación e inclusión social ciudadana, el ejercicio de los derechos y el empoderamiento de poblaciones históricamente discriminadas, excluidas y víctimas de conflictos y violencia. En este marco hay un rol importante que pueden jugar las identidades, la biodiversidad y el patrimonio cultural territoriales. Colombia es un país de paradojas. Se caracteriza por un elevado nivel de biodiversidad y una enorme riqueza cultural. Ha sido reconocido como uno de los cinco países con mayor diversidad biológica a nivel internacional, y es uno de los 17 países mega diversos en el mundo. No obstante, siguen manifestándose elevados índices de pobreza y desigualdad. La pobreza multidimensional en Colombia[1] ha ido decreciendo desde el 2010 pasando de tener 13´719.000 de personas en condición de pobreza multidimensional en 2010 a 8´586.000 en 2016 (DANE, 2017). Esta misma tendencia se registró también en las zonas rurales del país, pasando de 53,1% a 37,6% en 2016.
