In the international climate negotiations, the EU and Colombia are seen as good friends. In this policy brief, we discuss the reasons why the EU cooperates on climate change with fossil-rich and post- conflict Colombia.

We pose the question of whether this cooperation stretches beyond diplomatic cooperation in the context of climate negotiations.
