Forced eradication: a policy that kills is a multimedia report showing incidents of violence or confrontation between public forces and rural populations related to forced manual eradication of illicit crops in Colombia.

It aims to give visibility to the impacts of forced eradication policies in territories where the resources and projects promised to coca farmers under the Final Peace Agreement are still not seen.

It draws on a database of reported incidents since 2016, created by the Observatory for the Restitution and Regulation of Agrarian Property Rights. The database is being updated as new incidents are reported.
