'The Third Agreement' is an achievement of the Technical Working Group on Coffee (MTC) coordinated by the Agency for Reincorporation and Normalization (ARN) since 2018 in Planadas. This working group benefits 71 former Farc-Ep members, members of the Nasa Wes'x indigenous council of Gaitania and coffee-farming families in the region.



For its 16 years' experience in the development of reintegration and reincorporation of ex-combatants, through the work led by the Agency for the Reincorporation and Normalization (ARN), the Colombian State was accepted by international institutions as a permanent member of the Integrated Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration Training Group (IDDRTG).



​The Agency for Reincorporation and Normalization (ARN), in partnership with the British Council, implements a strategy to promote community actions with a gender and women's rights approach for ex-combatants in 9 departments of the country.


The first productive training environment of 2019 for people in the process of reincorporation began in Cauca with the participation of 40 ex-combatants of the Farc-Ep and people of the community.
