As part of the peace agreement reached in 2016 with the FARC, the Colombian government introduced new policy measures that aim to support the recovery of the (rural) areas most affected by the conflict by 2030. A team of local PEP researchers used a modelling approach to analyze the effects of these policies on potential earnings for rural households, income distribution between rural and urban areas, and the national economy as a whole. Their findings suggest that these policies should help agriculture in the country recover from decades of conflict and improve wellbeing for rural communities.
