Sharing the lessons learned of SerMacarena

06.10.2015

In an event that took place in Bogotá, departmental and national actors from government, civil society and international cooperation discussed the model and steps of establishing a multi-actor platform for dialogue on land use and how to plan it - one of Colombia's most controversial issues and a key conflict cause. Previously, a publication that systematises the experience of a three-year GIZ project in Meta called SerMacarena had been presented. The systematisation has been elaborated inter alia by Barbara Unger of the Berghof Foundation. SerMacarena aims to provide actors active in territorial peacebuilding with lessons and a step-by-step guide for implementing the model. The publication is availabl e at www.ame-macarena.org.
