INL is part of the Department of State’s multi-faceted response to transnational criminal activity.
Dedicated to strengthening criminal justice systems, countering the flow of illegal narcotics, and minimizing transnational crime, INL plays a key role in leading the development and synchronization
of U. S. international drug and crime assistance.
INL Bogota’s Rural Engagement, Development, and Security (REDS) program seeks to expand the reach and availability of civil society social inclusion programs for survivors of landmines and IEDs and other vulnerable populations, and to promote civil society engagement with historically disadvantaged and vulnerable communities.
To further progress in these areas, INL Bogota has allocated $200,000 U. S. Dollars to identify and support programs that will advance these REDS goals.
