To date, some 3 million Venezuelans have left their country, the vast majority arriving to countries in Latin America and the Caribbean in conditions of extreme vulnerability. This unprecedented movement is the largest displacement of people in the history of Latin America and the Caribbean.

Objectives

FAO is working with partners of the Food Security Cluster to:

• Monitor and support the food security and livelihoods of vulnerable migrants from Venezuela.

• Support regional actions against xenophobia and discrimination as well as trafficking and smuggling.

• Promote labour integration and social protection measures.
