The Colombian Social Democratic Party (Partido Socialdemócrata Colombiano) is a political party (centre-left) in Colombia.

A social democracy is a political ideology that supports economic and social interventions to promote social justice within the framework of a capitalist economy, and a policy regime involving welfare state provisions, collective bargaining arrangements, regulation of the economy in the general interest, redistribution of income and wealth, and a commitment to representative democracy.

In the 2002 legislative elections, the party was one of the many small parties to achieve parliamentary representation.
