RMNA 2023 - Regional Summary
The Regional Inter-Agency Coordination Platform for Refugees and Migrants from Venezuela (R4V) issues this Refugee and Migrant Needs Analysis (RMNA) for 2023 to provide insights into the situation and varied challenges that refugees and migrants – both in-destination and in-transit – as well as their affected host communities face. The RMNA draws upon an extensive range of sources, with special emphasis on the inter-agency joint needs assessments (JNAs) conducted by R4V partners in various countries. Of particular importance are the primary data collection exercises, led by R4V, which comprehensively assess various sectoral needs. The JNAs embrace a participatory approach and are designed to evaluate the vulnerabilities and needs of refugees and migrants, relying on their first-hand testimonies and recommendations. Additionally, the annual joint needs assessments carried out by National Platforms enable the RMNA to show the development of situations and needs in comparison to previous years.
