BSD Consulting supports Reconciliation and Peace efforts in Colombia
BSD Colombia is supporting a reconciliation project titled "Reconciliación Colombia" that promotes reconciliation and peace in Colombia by bringing to the forefront the initiatives and activities that contribute to the reconstruction of a post-conflict country.
The project “Reconciliación Colombia” is led by the civil society with the participation of Revista Semana - Colombia’s most prestigious magazine and a former client of BSD - the national government, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), USAID, Ecopetrol, and leading foundations. Revista Semana is identifying reconciliation initiatives and activities that are developed by private companies, civil society, international agencies and local governments across the country, for “Reconciliación Colombia”.
BSD Colombia is a technical partner for private sector initiatives and will structure the methodology and tools of the Business Pact for Reconciliation. The Pact will mobilize companies so that they are able to integrate peacebuilding actions into their business activities in order to expand to the areas affected by conflict. Companies demonstrating management and initiatives in favor of peace and reconciliation will also have the opportunity to become members of the Business Pact for Reconciliation. BSD’s participation in this project is entirely pro bono.
