As stated by the World Bank, the project development objective "is to foster an inclusive and resilient digital uptake and to respond effectively in case of an Eligible Crisis or Emergency."
The Project will be nationwide and will be implemented in remote regions of Colombia where digital gaps exist (especially in rural and remote areas). The exact areas where the Project will be implemented are not known yet.
According to the World Bank, the environmental and social risk of the project is "Substantial".

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF THE WORLD BANK
The World Bank Inspection Panel is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by a World Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Inspection Panel, they may investigate to assess whether the World Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can contact the Inspection Panel or submit a complaint by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Information on how to file a complaint and a complaint request form are available at: https://www.inspectionpanel.org/how-to-file-complaint
