STORYLINE
In Colombia to mark the fifth anniversary of the peace accord between the Government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC-EP, Secretary-General António Guterres on Tuesday (23 Nov) visited a small mountainside village where former combatants and civilians are living and working side-by-side.

The Secretary-General visited the northern town of Llano Grande, in the Department of Antioquia, along with Colombia’s President, Ivan Duque, as well as the former FARC-EP commander, Rodrigo Londoño. The town is one of several areas in the country where the former guerrillas are being reincorporated into civilian life.

Colombia has 32 Departments, or ‘States’. With up to 80 percent of its population affected, Antioquia was one of the areas most impacted by the more than 50-year conflict.

Llano Grande is a town of 150 inhabitants, where former ‘enemies’ now live and work together. With the support of the United Nations and the Government, the small village has become a place where peace reigns, and as inconceivable as it may have seemed five years ago, FARC combatants and locals now consider themselves family.

The UN chief walked through the town and was able to talk with its residents who are benefiting from different reincorporation entrepreneurial projects. He visited a clothing workshop that reintegrates former guerrilla fighters into civil society.

Guterres also spoke with other workers about their labour and discussed the importance of women’s leadership in the peace process. A group of former combatants took advantage of the UN Chief’s visit to launch Trópicos, a new coffee brand created by a cooperative with 1,200 members.

The Secretary-General also learned of other projects such as a town school, an arepas (Colombian cornmeal cakes) factory, and a soap factory.

During a brief address to the community on the town's soccer field, Guterres congratulated everyone for these projects, which have the support of the Government and the international community.

He said, "you can count on the commitment of the United Nations —the Verification Mission, UN Agencies, Funds and Programs— to peacebuilding, both in Llano Grande and in the other communities affected by the conflict in Colombia. With humility I recognize that our work is secondary, the essential work is the one made by Colombians."

From Llano Grande, Guterres and President Duque flew by helicopter to Apartadó, in the Urabá region, a province dedicated to the cultivation of bananas and where the Government chose to hold a regional commemorative event to mark the fifth anniversary of the peace accord.
