This roadmap was carried out from three perspectives, the first, taking into account the National Development Plan, second, the Departmental Territorial Planning Plan, which is a tool that we started more than six years ago, and the third, in alignment with the Objectives. of Sustainable Development,” explained Governor Dilian Francisca Toro during her speech at the Departmental Assembly.”

Participatory plan

Dilian Francisca Toro stated that the participation of the people of Valle del Cauca was vital in the preparation of this great document, “more or less 60 thousand people had the opportunity to decide what they want, I believe that we have never had such a high participation. I have to tell you that we held meetings with all sectors, women, young people, boys and girls, the Lgbtiq population, victims, people with disabilities, and we are also going to have a special chapter for indigenous people and another for people of African descent.”

One of the priorities of this Departmental Plan will be the generation of opportunities for all Valle del Cauca, including the population that is victim of the armed conflict.

In this regard, Jorge Rodríguez, Representative of the Departmental Victims Table, expressed that “here are collected all the needs of the victims of the department, what we demand most is peace, because without it it is difficult to move forward. For this reason, we call on the National Government to unify the work with the Valley.”

For their part, representatives of the indigenous communities celebrated the inclusion of a special chapter for the ethnic populations of the department.

Alirio Opúa, governor of the Wounaan Nonam community indicated that “we have participated in several meetings with the Governor, for me the Plan is very good, we have some benefits in terms of culture, artistic manifestations and all the needs that we have as indigenous people.”


The Departmental Development Plan is made up of four strategic lines, Competitive and Innovative Valley; Social and Equitable Valley, Biodiverse, cultural and inclusive Valley; and Valle Territorio para la Vida, with which work will be carried out transversally by all communities. “When we have inclusion we find a way to make peace, because we have voices that are not heard and with this Development Plan what is being done It is opening those doors so that we all have an opportunity to be equal,” said Juan Carlos Isaza, representative of the Lgbtiq community of Valle.

It is important to mention that thanks to the Territorial Planning Plan of Valle del Cauca, which is unique in the country, the department was divided into eight micro-regions in order to focus on the main problems that afflict the communities in their territories. That is why this tool was vital in the preparation of the Departmental Development Plan.
