British and Irish Agencies working in Colombia
Agencias Británicas e Irlandesas trabajando en Colombia
ABColombia is the advocacy project of a group of five leading UK and Irish organisations with programmes in Colombia: CAFOD, Christian Aid UKI, Oxfam GB, SCIAF and Trócaire. Amnesty International and Peace Brigades International (PBI) are observers.
Founded in 1997 to work on the question of forced internal displacement, it has since expanded its mandate to cover human rights and development.
ABColombia’s purpose is to influence decision makers in the UK and Ireland and, through them, European level decision making with a view to resolving the human rights and humanitarian crisis in Colombia and achieve a lasting peace and equitable and sustainable development.
