Watchlist’s report highlighted that protection strategies for children in Colombia largely assume an urban environment, and that the needs of rural communities in remote areas are neglected, even though they are the main targets of attacks by armed groups. Regional Development Plans for Putumayo and Norte Santander, developed over Spring and Summer 2012, include references to UN Security Council Resolution 1612. The practical effect of this measure is that it prioritizes the protection of children affected by the armed conflict in regional budget allocations, and that it subjects this matter to internal oversight and scrutiny. Indeed, local authorities are held accountable for commitments outlined in Regional Development Plans by the Office of the Inspector General of Colombia (Procuradoria). This entity receives progress reports from local administrations and can take a wide range of measures in response, including recommendations, inquiries and even punitive measures, such as demotions.
