Peace and Development is one of the main thrusts of the Provincial Government of Sarangani. Incepted in 2007 by Executive Order No. 16, the program aims to sustain the gains of peace and development in the Peace and Development Communities of the province. This study aimed to determine the peace and development index of the forty one (41) Peace and Development Communities. Following the descriptive-quantitative method, six hundred fifteen (615) stakeholders were surveyed using the modified version of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) assessment tool. Analysis of the data revealed that majority of the Peace and Development Communities belong to the adapting stage of development. The people in this communities based on the qualitative interpretation can assert their rights, and adopt systems and practices that promote peace while addressing human security needs while no barangay belongs to the early stage and emerging stage . The data also show that the social cohes ion, human rights protection and conflict management interplay a vital role in the development of communities.

Ethno- tourism and community tourism, a way to impact La Guajira Colombia
My name is Paola Andrea Forero Barrera, I am a historian with more than 14 years of experience in education and academy. I have worked in Bogota as a history teacher in English, at schools such as Gimnasio Britanico, Iragua, Portales and Hontanar. I was also a professor at Universidad de La Sabana, where I was able to accomplish my master’s degree on education. I arrived almost five years ago to the Guajira Peninsula to work as a teacher at Colegio Albania inside the Cerrejon mining complex. Ever since I met this region in depth, I dedicated myself to make ethnographies and developt experiences with three main approaches discovered during the process of dialogue and interaction with all the involved social members of the region. These approaches are: 1st, the sky, understanding the cosmogony of indigenous communities such as Wayuu, Arhuacos, Koguis, Wiwas and Kankuamos. 2nd, the soil, - starting with coal, gas, salt and "pancoger" products of the region(agriculture and wild fruits, veggies and such ). 3rd, the people, their rituals, customs and uses. On April 2014, after ending my contract with Cerrejon, I put on practice all I had learned, summing it into a social entrepreneurship the has the name of History Travelers SAS.
