Abstract

This report presents the results of a research project that analyzes the feasibility of learning from experiences of the Kenyan productive peasant developments in farming insect for animal feed to develop insect farming in Colombia, specifically to foster the current reincorporation process of ex-insurgents. The research, carried out by scientists from the Universidad Nacional de Colombia and Wageningen University & Research, develops an initial stage of knowledge exchange among countries of the global south. With a qualitative/quantitative methodology, the research employs documental analysis and focus groups to identify current features of the ex-insurgent population. The document highlights the conditions, suggested by ex-insurgent population, under which a similar project might be developed and presents some recommendations for a further implementation of a project in Colombia that is inspired by the experiences in Kenya.
