The Development Plans with a Territorial Focus (PDET) are the main tool of the Colombian State to carry out socio-economic development to the municipalities most affected by violence in the context of the armed conflict. However, they are also part of a comprehensive commitment of the Peace Agreement to build peace and strengthen State presence in territories where institutions have historically had a limited presence. This Spotlight explores the current state of the PDET, and analyzes their interdependence with other components of the Final Agreement to End the Armed Conflict and Build a Stable and Lasting Peace (from now on, the Final Agreement), such as the Integral System of Truth, Justice, Reparation and Non-Repetition (SIVJRNR), the National Comprehensive Program for the Substitution of Illicit Crops (PNIS), the security guarantees for social leaders, and the guarantees for the opposition in the process of democratic opening, among others. This Spotlight examines how the implementation of the PDET can become a tool that can strengthen the reintegration process, and in turn, how the participation of People in the Process of Reincorporation (PPRs) in the PDET can enhance the construction of territorial peace. The argument aims to demonstrate the integrality of the Peace Agreement as a guiding principle for the implementation of the PDET, in a context of growing political and social volatility and increasing organized armed violence.
