Programme innovation in Latin America and the Caribbeans

The Latin America and the Caribbeans (LAC) region is a crucial area for displacement-focused humanitarian work. In particular, Colombia hosts one of world’s largest populations of Internally Displaced Persons, due to the protracted yet volatile internal armed conflict that has affected the country for more than 50 years. Besides this Colombia has been directly affected by the massive influx of refugees and migrants fleeing Venezuela. Venezuelan refugees and migrants are extremely vulnerable to multi-faceted protection risks, and face difficulties in meeting their basic needs, such as food, shelter, health, and education.
