If economic interventions are carried out considering adaptation and mitigation, they can enhance rural incomes and reduce environmental impact.

The Sustainable Economic Transformation (SET) activity supports sustainable economic opportunities and investment in various vulnerable areas of Colombia, fostering growth, development, and peace implementation in an equitable and environmentally sustainable manner. SET works to make rural economies increasingly competitive, economically diverse, and resilient to economic and climate-related disruptions, which is essential for lasting peace.
