The Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Jhenifer Mojica Flórez, recently announced that Gustavo Petro’s government is committed to delivering 3,400 hectares of land to farmers in the department of Magdalena. This announcement is part of the land purchase initiative, the restitution of lands to victims of the armed conflict and the recognition of ancestral territories of the indigenous peoples of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta.

According to Minister Mojica, of the 25,000 hectares of land managed in Magdalena through the National Land Agency, 3,400 have already been purchased. “Yesterday we received the instruction from the President of the Republic, Gustavo Petro, to expedite the purchase and delivery of land in the region, and that is what we are going to do,” said the minister.

In addition to the delivery of land, an Agrarian Reform Committee will be established in the department of Magdalena, with the purpose of addressing concerns about land ownership and occupation. This committee will be composed of representatives of local government, peasant organizations, community leaders and experts in agrarian issues, and will act as a centralized point of contact to coordinate agrarian reform efforts in the region.

The committee’s functions include reviewing land redistribution requests, evaluating cases of forced displacement, and making policy recommendations to promote a more equitable distribution of agrarian resources in the region.

In addition, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development activated the Fund for Reparation for Victims in the department of Magdalena, in order to respond comprehensively to the difficulties faced by thousands of families displaced from their lands and guarantee their food security.

Finally, in relation to the recognition of ancestral territories of the indigenous peoples of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, Minister Mojica highlighted the installation of a dialogue table with the Arhuaco people to prioritize the processes of constitution of the reservations, with the objective to preserve their knowledge and protect the water that comes from the Sierra Nevada. “We want the people of Magdalena to enjoy the paradise in which they live,” said the leader of this ministerial portfolio.
