The effects of changes in land use and the effects of climate change have led to an increase in the morphodynamic processes that affect rights-of-way in Colombia. However, in view of the fact that these rights-of-way are considered to be the best possible routes in some areas in which the geological and geotechnical components are fairly complex, specialists are facing the challenge of establishing different perspectives for coexisting with the geohazards in these areas. This paper describes the analytical methodology implemented within Ecopetrol’s Office of the Vice President for Transportation and Logistics (VIT-Ecopetrol), in order to take this reality into account within the framework of proper asset management.
