Rapid impact projects

To supplement its methodology, the PFP uses a strategy named Rapid Impact Projects (RIP), which consists of executing projects that are stagnant due to lack of resources, are awaiting the go-ahead from some entity at the National Government level, or are funded but have not been articulated.  In addition to its social impact on the border communities, this strategy is also intended to generate confidence among the local players, who have repeatedly reiterated their perception of being neglected by the Colombian State. 3 projects are currently in process and 5 additional ones have been formulated:
