Plan Colombia: Drug Reduction Goals Were Not Fully Met, But Security Assistance
DIANE Publishing, 2010 - 115 pages
In Sept. 1999, the gov¿t. of Colombia announced a strategy, known as "Plan Colombia," to (1) reduce the production of illicit drugs (primarily cocaine) by 50% in 6 years; and (2) improve security in Colombia by re-claiming control of areas held by illegal armed groups. Since FY 2000, the U.S. has provided over $6 billion to support Plan Colombia. This report examined: (1) the progress made toward Plan Colombia's drug reduction and enhanced security objectives; (2) the results of U.S. aid for the military and police; (3) the results of U.S. aid for non-military programs; and (4) the status of efforts to "nationalize" or transfer operations and funding responsibilities for U.S.-supported programs to Colombia.
