Description

At least 4.6 million Venezuelan migrants and refugees are living in other Latin American and Caribbean countries, with many having moved since 2015 as political and economic conditions in Venezuela deteriorated. As it has become clear that many of the displaced will remain abroad for an extended period, if not permanently, focus has begun to shift from the provision of humanitarian aid for new arrivals to include facilitating their integration into receiving-country labor markets, health-care and education systems, and local communities.
