Geneva –The number of refugees and migrants from Venezuela worldwide has now topped 6 million, with the vast majority hosted by countries in Latin America and the Caribbean. Most have been displaced for many years outside Venezuela.

IOM, and UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency have developed a Regional Response Plan for Refugees and Migrants from Venezuela (or RMRP) to coordinate humanitarian efforts across 17 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Several host countries have established innovative protection and regularization mechanisms to help them access rights and services. However, as this situation prolongs over time, the vulnerabilities and risks that Venezuelans face, as well as the needs of their host communities, have dramatically increased.

“Steadfast support from the international community remains crucial to address the most urgent needs of refugees and migrants, and to help host countries ensure their socio-economic integration,” said Eduardo Stein, Joint Special Representative of UNHCR and IOM for Refugees and Migrants from Venezuela.

“Those who have left Venezuela are ready to contribute and give back to the communities that have welcomed them.”
