REGIONAL INTER-AGENCY COORDINATION PLATFORM

In April 2018 the UN Secretary-General provided direction for IOM and UNHCR to lead and coordinate the regional response to the situation of refugees and migrants from Venezuela. Further to this direction, the Regional Inter-Agency Coordination Platform was established as a forum to coordinate the response efforts across 17 countries of Latin America and the Caribbean.

At national and sub-regional levels, the Regional Platform is complemented by local coordination mechanisms. Dedicated National and Sub-regional Platforms, collaborating closely with host governments are charged with the operational coordination and implementation of the regional Refugee and Migrant Response Plan (RMRP). Such coordination platforms are in place at national levels in Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru and at sub-regional levels in the Caribbean, Central America & Mexico and the Southern Cone.
