Gonzalo Rodríguez Gacha lands were awarded to peasants

The land was transferred to the extinct INCODER since it belonged to the drug trafficker Gonzalo Rodríguez Gacha, alias ‘El Mexicano’. In 2006 the properties began to be occupied by peasant families who did not have enough land and were victims of the armed conflict in Antioquia, Córdoba, Cundinamarca and Santander.

After 15 years of waiting for the peasants, this June 23 the ANT issued a decision that is historic and unprecedented: 55 adjudication resolutions, equivalent to 305 hectares plus 5,773 titled square meters.

These awards guarantee access to rural property to 55 peasant families.

In the last four years, the ANT has granted more than 50,000 rural property titles, equivalent to nearly 1,319,000 million regularized hectares, for the benefit of approximately 69,000 families of the country’s peasant and ethnic population.

The entity has also implemented a gender approach in its politicians and for this reason 50% of the beneficiaries of its projects are rural women.
