A decade after a landmark land restitution law passed in Colombia, returning families displaced by confrontations between FARC rebels and paramilitary groups to their properties remains an uphill battle.
Just a fraction of the land has been assigned and few projects have been established to guarantee returning families a livelihood in a place scarred by conflict.
Those families who have returned - and are trying to make a new living by planting legal crops instead of coca - are worried that the slow pace of reparations will allow violence to rack the region again.

Al Jazeera’s Alessandro Rampietti reports from Valle del Guamez, Colombia.
