What is the Integration Sector?

Priority Needs

The Regional Integration Sector, based on consultations with National and Sub-regional Integration Sectors has identified three priority socio-economic integration needs. These priorities are in line with the pillars of the Regional Socioeconomic Integration Strategy, which has been elaborated in the dual framework of the R4V Platform and the Quito Process:

1.         First, regularization processes and their linkages to promote integration. Regular status and documentation were reported as the main concerns of Venezuelan refugees and migrants, affecting access to the formal labour market and essential services, particularly during COVID-19.

2.        Second, access to livelihood opportunities, in particular for women and youth. Barriers include local languages in some countries (e.g., Brazil and the Caribbean), costly and bureaucratic processes for the recognition of professional titles, degrees and qualifications, lack of childcare support, inability to access financial services, discrimination, limited (self-) employment and entrepreneurship opportunities, or lack of awareness by employers of labour rights and recruitment processes, as well as the migrant workers’ inclusion in host countries’ social protection systems.

3.        Third, social cohesion between refugees and migrants and their host communities. The long-term presence of Venezuelan refugees and migrants, coupled with limited employment opportunities and increasing pressures on essential services and the environment, as well as the spread of false information, have contributed to increasing xenophobia and discrimination, including gender discrimination faced by women and LGBTQI+ people.

Response Strategy

The Integration Sector will support approaches, partnerships and tools to promote the socioeconomic integration of Venezuelan refugees and migrants in a gender, age and diversity-responsive manner, while contributing to overall local sustainable development, through the implementation of the “Regional Strategy for the Socio-Economic Integration of Refugees and Migrants from Venezuela and their Host Communities.”

The Sector’s response will focus on promoting socio-economic integration (during and post-COVID-19), reducing xenophobia and promoting social cohesion, particularly for those affected economically by the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes those a) unemployed or underemployed, b) working in the informal sector, including domestic services, and c) workers not included in social protection systems, with a crosscutting focus on women, youth, marginalized groups (indigenous, persons with specific needs, LGBTQI+ people), GBV survivors and those at risk of GBV or evictions.

  • The first response priority aims to link regularization processes with others that promote integration, for example by advocating for access to work in the formal sector and to work-related documentation requirements, such as work permits, and de-facto access to work by sensitizing relevant actors (e.g., ministries of labor, employment agencies and the private sector) on labour rights and the mechanisms for the recruitment of refugees and migrants.
  • The second response priority aims to facilitate economic recovery and access to livelihood opportunities for Venezuelan refugees and migrants by identifying and sharing best practices on easing administrative processes for degree and qualifications recognition, alternatives to the apostille and solutions to address high processing costs.
  • The third response priority will promote social cohesion, through campaigns and/or sensitization initiatives that strengthen civic coexistence and cultural exchanges and contribute to eradicating sexualized stereotypes of Venezuelan women and girls.

GUIA para CONTRATAÇÃO de MIGRANTES pelo SETOR PÚBLICO

O poder público tem o papel crucial de ser o indutor de desenvolvimento  sustentável.  Com  as  transformações  do  mundo,  a  Administração Pública tem que atender as demandas históricas e ainda se reinventar para enfrentar os novos desafios, sem deixar ninguém para trás. Mais do que usuários dos serviços públicos, os migrantes e outras minorias têm papel fundamental para a superação dos desafios apresentados.  “Fazer  mais com menos”  sempre  foi o  lema do setor  público, mas com a inclusão da pluralidade de talentos é possível “juntos fazer melhor”. Quanto maior a diversidade de pessoas no setor público, melhores  serão  as  políticas  públicas.  A  seguir,  com  base  na  legislação  brasileira, apresentamos algumas questões e sugestões de caminhos a serem seguidos para a incentivar a atuação do migrante nos serviços públicos.

Guidance note – Environment and Integration, RMRP 2022

This guidance note has been adapted for the RMRP 2022. Guidance is limited to the context of the region and this emergency. The note is not intended to cover all integration-related interventions or all human mobility emergencies anywhere in the world. Where integration interventions overlap with those of other sectors, guidance for those sectors should also be reviewed. Environmental factors can be causes or drivers of humanitarian needs for people on the move and host communities. The environment can be affected by the integration sector response to those needs. Those impacts can be mitigated, and the integration sector response can also be an entry point for low-cost and simple ways to improve environmental management. Possibly more than many other sectors, due to its nature the integration sector has great potential to make use of environment to achieve its goals while integration initiatives can be designed to generate positive environmental impacts.
