Atlas de la Resiliencia
Este Atlas de la Resiliencia es el resumen de un esfuerzo colectivo, donde las comunidades, la institucionalidad y los ánimos vibrantes y colaborativos de los territorios y su gente han hecho posible que la resiliencia comunitaria persista. En estas historias reales y sentidas está la vivencia y evidencia de cientos de personas que, desde los montes y sabanas del Caribe y los valles del Pacifico a los caminos del Catatumbo y las montañas del Cauca siguen jugándosela toda para seguir adelante defendiendo la vida.
