He also explains the effects of the measures taken in response to this crisis on agricultural, mining and extractive activities in rural Cauca.
This episode raises the following, and other, questions: Is there still a centralist and urban focus in the management of the health crisis? How are the government, the armed actors and the communities in El Cauca responding to the economic issues?.
