This report analyzes how armed conflict in Colombia has affected children and youth. It looks at specific trends and conflict dynamics in the most conflict-affected areas.

Although violence decreased after the 2016 demobilisation of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, attempts by other armed groups to take over the power vacuum in areas previously dominated by the FARC-EP has increased conflict levels. Between 2020-2021 there was an 88% increase in the number of conflict-affected children and youth.
