This report first reviews how inequality in land distribution has reached extreme levels in Colombia. Then  it  analyzes  the  problem  of concentration of land from different perspectives and indicators based on the agricultural census data from 2016, focusing on the major differences between the extremes.

It  also  signals  the  weaknesses  in  gender statistics,  the  conflicts  in  land  use,  the predominance of extensive cattle farming and the core problem of land grabbing and its non-productive  use.  Lastly,  it  hones  in  on  the Altillanura, which is the region in the spotlight as  the  new  agricultural  frontier  and  where controversial  legislative  reforms  may  further exacerbate the concentration of land.
