Columbia to destroy 130,000 hectares of coca in 2020

Columbia’s defence minister has said that he hopes to eradicate 130,000 hectares of coca in 2020. This target is 30% higher than in 2019 when 100,000 hectares were manually destroyed. Columbian officials have preferred to use manual crop destruction since the World Health Organisation (WHO) reported environment and health harms from glyphosate aerial fumigation.
