    Venezuela (Bolivarian Republic of) | Revised humanitarian response (May–December 2020)
    Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)

    As a result of the ongoing political and economic crisis in Venezuela (Bolivarian Republic of), more than 5 million Venezuelans have left the country since 2014, of whom about 897 000 have applied for asylum globally, and by the end of 2020 an estimated 6.5 million will have left the country. The country’s capacity to import has deteriorated due to the continued depreciation of the local currency and the dwindling level of foreign exchange reserves, following the decline in oil revenues and the imposition of international sanctions. In addition, logistical constraints linked to the effects of the pandemic are expected to adversely affect food access among urban and peri-urban communities. The Government has thus launched production plans and financial assistance to boost agricultural production, especially of cereals, and strengthen the public food distribution system. The urgent and essential restrictions put in place by the Government in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic have affected logistics and agricultural activities across the country. The plummeting prices of oil amid the COVID-19 outbreak have reduced export earnings, worsening the country’s capacity to import. The combined effects of fuel shortages and containment measures has disrupted food production and local food supply chains. In the framework of FAO’s Corporate COVID-19 Response and Recovery Programme and the United Nations Global Humanitarian Response Plan for COVID-19, FAO has revised its humanitarian response for 2020 to mitigate the effects of the pandemic and address the needs of the most vulnerable households.

    The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela: Humanitarian Response Plan 2022-2023 2023

    In the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, the socioeconomic crisis continues to drive food insecurity – the most pressing challenge for the population. Devaluation of the national currency and rising food prices have impacted households’ purchasing power. Vulnerable populations still have to adopt two or more negative coping mechanisms (e.g. skipping meals and selling productive assets) to cover their food needs. Livelihoods assistance is a vital component of the food security response. Every USD 1 spent on supporting local food production with seed packages triples its value in harvests, providing healthy diets for the whole family.

    This report shares the analysis on the effects of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in the agri-food system in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela based on the assessment conducted during August–September 2020. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) is implementing a project to contribute to data collection and analysis linked to COVID-19 to inform evidence-based programming in selected countries. The objective is to assess the effects of COVID-19 in the agri-food system, which includes livestock and fishing, food supply, livelihoods and food security of the rural population at national level. Information is collected from primary sources of the production process: producer households, traders or marketers, inputs suppliers, extension officers and key informants. The first round of data collection has been completed, with rounds II and III foreseen in 2021.
