In this short video, Diego Bustamante talks about his experience working as a counterpart with USAID’s Office of Transition Initiatives (OTI). Diego highlights the innovative approach OTI used in Colombia from 2007 through 2011 that led to the Colombian government adopting OTI’s strategy, which helped to reduce conflict and improve government legitimacy in former guerilla controlled areas.

The video was made to showcase OTI’s work at the Frontiers in Development Conference in Washington, D.C. on June 11, 2012. The video was shown before a panel titled, “Helping Democracies Deliver.”
