The department of Nariño is a strategic point for drug trafficking and other irregular economies such as illegal mining and illicit crops. The three municipalities that make up the Telembí triangle (Barbacoas, Magüí Payán, and Roberto Payán) have been particularly affected by the conflict and the actions of armed groups. The changing dynamics of the armed conflict in the region and the limited response capacity have increased the needs of communities in Nariño and the Telembí triangle. At least ten armed groups are disputing territory in the department.
