ABSTRACT

Plan Colombia: A Progress Report [Updated June 22, 2005]   [open pdf - 83KB]

"Because Plan Colombia is a six-year plan, due to expire at the end of 2005, Congress will likely assess its progress in light of the Administration's request to continue funding the ACI account, the latter having no statutory end-date. Congress has expressed the expectation that funding would begin to decrease in FY2006. Some Members have also expressed the opinion that the ratio between interdiction and alternative development should become more balanced, and that the U.S. role should diminish as Colombia develops more operational capabilities." This report on Plan Colombia assesses the progress the Plan has made on decreasing the entry of illegal narcotics into the United States and increasing security and peace in the Andean region.
