To achieve that goal, USAID will work directly with prospective organizations in the following areas:
1. Strengthened capacity of ethnic organizations and traditional
authorities to govern their territories, advocate for their rights/interests, and implement post-conflict initiatives; 2. Strengthened self and collective protection initiatives; 3. Improved conditions for inclusive rural economic growth; and 4. Strengthened natural resource management of Afro-Colombian and indigenous territories.
