Colombia

Since 2002, two Forjando Liderazgo events have been conducted in Colombia, impacting an estimated 140 participants and their communities. In Colombia DPNA/RIPRED conducted Forjando Liderazgo seminars in Medellin and in Bogota, and they were very well received. DPNA/RIPRED member, local coordinator for the event in Medellin and Director of SURGIR, Margarita Sanchez, declared that this seminar greatly strengthened the ties among diverse organizations in Colombia. Organizations such as ONUD, local and national government authorities, diverse NGOs as well as private entities which participated enhanced their efforts in drug demand reduction by improving communication and knowledge of areas where their efforts may overlap to work together in new ways. Also, the Forjando Liderazgo seminar materials that were distributed were noted to have an extremely positive impact.

• A Forjando Liderazgo event was held for approximately 80 participants in Medellin, Colombia in September 7-8, 2006 in partnership with the NGO SURGIR.

• A Forjando Liderazgo event was held for approximately 60 participants in Bogotá, Colombia, April 23-25, 2008.
