Corporation Transparencia Por Colombia (TpC) will build on work that it began under the previous phase of the project when a beneficial ownership (BO) registry legislation finally pass. During 2022-2025 TpC and GFI will advocate for robust, meaningful implementation of the registry. In preliminary planning conversations, TpC and GFI have identified inter-agency cooperation and international information exchange as two main points for beneficial ownership implementation that will need to be addressed through research and advocacy efforts in 2023-2025. In addition TpC will lead on mapping of corruption risks in the hydrocarbon sector (gas and petroleum, for example) and in developing at least 8 policy recommendations to mitigate risks. El Centro de Alternativas de Desarollo (CEALDES) will leverage previous advocacy experience on environmental protection and natural resource governance. CEALDES will also participate in capacity-building activities organized by GFI related to IFFs, which will allow them to incorporate financial transparency concepts into their advocagrater integrity in natural resources and rade cy work going forward. CEALDES will produce a report on supply chain issues and deforestation drivers (such as cattle ranching, carbon, and/or land leasing) and develop at least 8 policy recommendations to better conserve forest resources. CEALDES will lead on stakeholder engagement efforts, including advocacy engagement with policymakers, private sector, and local communities. CEALDES will support research and advocacy for corporate and land ownership integrity and as well as professional integrity in Colombia.
