FONSECA, María Alejandra Gutiérrez  and  GUZMAN, Alejandro Balanzó. Adapt or die: strategies of the government of Meta to face the challenges posed by the Colombian General Royalty System. Rev. Adm. Pública [online]. 2019, vol.53, n.5, pp.975-986.  Epub Nov 11, 2019. ISSN 1982-3134.

In 2012, a new General Royalty System (GRS) was established in Colombia, promoting changes in the context of territorial management. This article analyzes the adaptive capacity of the local government in the region of Meta, considering the budget reduction and administrative challenges brought by GRS. The study adopts a comprehensive analytical model on adaptive capacity, built on a systemic approach that allows exploring the government’s adaptation to achieve the benefits of the reform. Results show a contrast between a relatively satisfactory initial adaptive strategy and meager results regarding a lasting organizational and institutional adjustment.

Keywords : adaptation; capacity; royalties; meta.
