Cali Town

Cali’s Resilience Journey

Cali has one of the fastest-growing economies in Colombia, and a growing population to match, due in part to thousands forcibly displaced by armed conflict. Many of these new residents are concentrating in high-risk, informal settlements, with limited access to health and other basic public services. These settlements often face increased exposure to flooding due to the vulnerability of the Cauca River dike.

To protect and integrate new residents, Cali has relocated thousands of households. The national government has provided funding to improve the waterway containment infrastructure. The city is also working on methods to increase equitable access to affordable housing, as part of an effort to address crime, violence, and inequality.
