The Venezuelan refugee and migrant crisis is one of the biggest external displacement crises in the world today. The COVID-19 pandemic has compounded an already desperate situation for many refugees and migrants, as well as their host countries, testing the ability of countries to assist vulnerable populations.
With state capacities under pressure and social service provision at its limits, there is an urgent need to complement government efforts to support vulnerable populations. Additional support is essential to meet both immediate humanitarian needs and to address longer-term development gaps, with the aim of facilitating the socio-economic inclusion of refugees and migrants, as an opportunity for all.
The Regional Inter-Agency Coordination Platform for Refugees and Migrants from Venezuela (R4V), in close collaboration with local organisations, has coordinated its efforts and strategic intentions to produce the 2022 RMRP, which aims to address new challenges in delivering basic support and protection to these persons in need, as well as to the local communities which host them.
