Colombia-UK PACT

Select language:

ukpact-0colombia

UK PACT has partnered with Colombia, a country with a strong commitment to international and domestic action on climate change and sustainable growth.

Colombia has demonstrated regional leadership in tackling climate change and encouraging sustainable growth. This shared vision has resulted in a history of successful and mutually-beneficial collaboration, cemented through the ‘UK-Colombia Partnership for Sustainable Growth’. This Partnership demonstrates the UK government’s desire to work closely with Colombian counterparts on accelerating domestic action on climate change and raising global climate ambition. This commitment to long-term support has positioned the UK as a key ally, with the Colombian government naming 2021 as the ‘year of UK and Colombia’.

In the first round of funding, Colombia-UK PACT funded thirteen projects and three skill-shares. Following a successful round of implementation of the first phase of Colombia-UK PACT, the second round of funding was launched in August 2020. Projects have been selected across five priority sectors: green finance, sustainable mobility, climate policy, energy and forests and land use. See the carousel below for more detailed information on each project.
