Abstract

The methods of substituting illicit crops in con?ict areas have been debated at an international level in various studies. However, not many studies have focused on the e?ects of substituting illicit crops with regards to the concept of rural prosperity. The paper presents a new methodological focus for substituting illicit crops in con?ict areas, based on the ?Working with People? (WWP) model. It incorporates expert knowledge relating to planningactivities forsubstitutingillicitcrops,andlinksbetweenprosperity andruraldevelopment. Thestudyis based on a region of Colombia called La Macarena. The social base consists of 2503 families a?ected by the historic con?ict involving illegal armed groups (FARC) for more than 50 years. We present the di?erent phases and historic milestones that have occurred in relation to Alternative Development policies in Colombia (1964?2016). The empirical evidence presented indicates that WWP model provides process of social learning, and can be e?ective for substituting illicit crops, to alternative development projects by the public and private sectors. Establishing trust by working with people was the main condition, which facilitated the creation of prosperity and rural development with a sustainability vision.
