Integrated monitoring project for alternative development policies

This project produces information on the phenomenon of illicit crops and the advancement of public policies to address this problem, taking into account social, economic, environmental, territorial and institutional aspects, supporting the government work in regards the consolidation of territories free from this type of cultivation.

Integrated monitoring detects illicit crops through remote sensors, flyovers, verification in the field and statistical sampling; collects information in the field regarding the social, economic, environmental and institutional conditions of the territories targeted by the government and makes integrated analysis of the information collected at the beginning, during and at the end of the intervention of the alternative development strategy, resulting in baseline reports (beginning), monitoring (during) and evaluation (final) for managing the actions of the Programme Against Illicit Crops -DPCI- (for its initials in Spanish).

Currently, integrated monitoring is being carried out in 850 targeted territories that include townships, indigenous reserves and collectively owned land across 53 municipalities in 12 departments.
