UK Prosperity Fund for Colombia
The Colombia Prosperity Fund Programme, which was launched in 2017 and is worth £25.5m, supports economic development, unlocks economic opportunities and drives growth in post-conflict and conflict-affected regions.
The Programme is promoting urban development, improving rail infrastructure, funding agri-tech innovations, designing and market testing agri-insurance products and services. It is also supporting open public procurement, reforming corporate governance of the National Infrastructure Agency (ANI) and strengthening regional competitiveness.
The programme will benefit three million people, with a focus on women and girls in Colombia’s poorest regions, and will also generate commercial opportunities for business, including those from the UK.
