The Venezuelan exodus constitutes the largest displacement crisis in modern Latin American history and one of the most underfunded worldwide.

Since 2015, facing internal economic and institutional crises, 5.6 million Venezuelans have left their homes, with over 4.6 million remaining in the region.

In this context, the European Union, the Government of Canada, and the Coalition LAC RMD have organised a High-level meeting with civil society in solidarity with Venezuelan refugees and migrants.

The purpose is to provide International Non-Governmental Organisations (INGOs) and Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) with visibility and an active role in the 2021 Pledging Conference. The event also aims to highlight their added value in the delivery of assistance to those affected.

The event will be co-hosted by Commissioner for Crisis Management, Janez Lenarčič, and Canada’s Minister for International Development, Karina Gould.
