Five Years of Peace Agreement Implementation in Colombia: Achievements, Challenges and Opportunities to Increase Implementation Levels, December 2016 - October 2021



This report presents the status of implementation of the Final Agreement after five years through three sections of analysis. First, it presents overall implementation status as of October 2021, in accordance with results stemming from the Kroc Institute’s methodology for monitoring the 578 stipulations contained in the Final Agreement.1 Second, it lays out the main implementation milestones during these five years for each of the agreement’s six points and the cross-cutting ethnic and gender approaches. Finally, the Kroc Institute identifies strategic accord commitments that can create positive cascades and have the capacity to increase implementation levels for each point of the Agreement.

Evaluating implementation of the Colombian Final Agreement five years after its signing is a significant task. As stipulated in section 6.3.2 of the Final Agreement, the Kroc Institute has the mandate to provide technical assistance to the International Verification Component (CIV) and the Commission for Monitoring, Promoting, and Verifying the Implementation of the Final Agreement (CSIVI). The Kroc Institute aims to provide the public and the academic community with the results of its monitoring and analysis to contribute to public dialogue about the current state of implementation of the Final Agreement.
