What is the Food Security Sector?

Priority Needs

By jeopardizing households’ purchasing power, food production and supply chains, as well as national response capacities, the COVID-19 pandemic significantly increased food insecurity. Across Latin America and the Caribbean – the region that incurred the highest relative increase of people in severe food insecurity, from 4.3 million in 2019 to 17.1 million by August 2020 – refugees and migrants from Venezuela are among those most affected, particularly women, including female-headed households and children.

With their income highly dependent on livelihoods tied to the informal sector and/or remittances, having access to a more limited local support network and being largely excluded from underfunded national safety nets, Venezuelan refugees and migrants saw their food security status deteriorate since the pandemic began.

The state of food security among refugees and migrants, combined with the particularly diverse nutritional needs of children, pregnant and lactating women, girls and the elderly in all household types, represent the main challenge for the Sector.

Response Strategy

Regional activities will focus on strengthening sectoral coordination and information management to fill gaps between R4V partners in harmonized planning, food security assessments, monitoring and reporting, as well as resource mobilization and advocacy, with gender-sensitive response targeting and programme design.

A response spanning expanded programmatic approaches

The acute food security needs caused by losses of income and access to basic services during the pandemic – particularly among women and children – have prompted partners to increase initiatives targeting immediate and urgent food needs in a gender- and age-responsive manner. Other activities will seek to address the quality of diet among refugees and migrants. Finally, partners will seek to facilitate the inclusion of refugees and migrants in existing social protection programmes via pilot projects, advocacy efforts and technical assistance.

A response prioritizing cash and voucher assistance

The RMRP 2021 budget for food security activities prioritizes cash and voucher assistance (CVA), aiming to maximize the welfare of beneficiaries and accommodate their consumption preferences.

RMNA 2022 - Análise de Necessidades de Refugiados e Migrantes (Regional e Capítulo Brasil)

Desde 2018, a Plataforma R4V lança Planos Regionais de Resposta a Refugiados e Migrantes (RMRP) anuais, destacando as necessidades dos grupos populacionais vulneráveis, bem como as estratégias de resposta dos vários grupos da Plataforma e do setor, incluindo uma revisão completa após o início da COVID -19 em março de 2020. Com base no feedback valioso das partes interessadas, durante o processo de planejamento em 2022, a Plataforma R4V decidiu separar o RMRP em dois documentos: (i) a Análise de Necessidades de Refugiados e Migrantes (RMNA), que destaca as necessidades de refugiados e migrantes da Venezuela, enquanto (ii) o RMRP destacará a estratégia de resposta. A RMNA inclui análises setoriais e multissetoriais por Plataformas e Setores em todos os níveis da resposta (regional, nacional e sub-regional). Estes incluem, no mínimo, um Workshop JNA e uma revisão de dados secundários com parceiros R4V e governos do país anfitrião, bem como exercícios de coleta de dados primários, discussões de grupos focais e/ou entrevistas com informantes-chave, com base nas necessidades de informação e dinâmica de cada Plataforma.
