Share

The Kenneth M. Ludden Foreign Operations, Export Financing, and Related Programs Appropriations Act, 2002 (P.L. 107-115) (the FY 2002 FOAA) stipulates that

"...such funds may not be made available for such purposes after six months from the date of enactment of this Act unless alternative development programs have been developed, in consultation with communities and local authorities in the departments in which such aerial fumigation is planned, and in the departments in which such aerial fumigation is has been conducted such programs are being implemented..."

The attached chart denotes, by department, where aerial spraying of coca has taken place or is anticipated during calendar year 2002. In each of those departments except Antioquia, alternative development programs have been developed in consultation with communities and local authorities in those departments. In the department of Antioquia, the alternative development project is under negotiation. In February 2002 spray planes treated approximately 1,620 hectares of coca in Antioquia. The Embassy and the Colombian National Police have agreed that no further spraying will take place until an alternative development project is being implemented.

The executing agency for each alternative development program is listed in column four. In the departments where the majority of the spraying has taken place in 2002 - Putumayo, Caqueta, Norte de Santander and Nari´┐Żo - multiple alternative development projects are currently being implemented simultaneously.
