Strategies for Humanitarian Aid in Venezuela
*Please note this event is not-for-attribution, and media cameras will not be permitted. This event will NOT be streamed live.*
Please join CSIS Americas in collaboration with Plan País for a public discussion about the humanitarian response strategy in Venezuela. The economic, political, humanitarian, and migratory crises in Venezuela have continued to deteriorate rapidly – leaving a collapsed country in desperate need of assistance. While some international efforts have been made to bring humanitarian aid into the country, under orders from Interim President Juan Guaidó, Nicolas Maduro’s regime has consistently rejected and blocked any support.
This public event will cover not only strategies for getting emergency humanitarian aid to Venezuelans in need, but also will discuss mid- to long-term strategies in sectors such as health, education and social protection.
This event will feature opening remarks from Gina Montiel, Manager of the Venezuela and Panama Country Departments at the Inter-American Development Bank. Panelists will include Miriam Kornblith, Senior Director for Latin America and the Caribbean at the National Endowment for Democracy, as well as several Plan País Venezuela-based experts.
This event is made possible in partnership with Plan País, an initiative of the Venezuelan National Assembly and the Guaidó Administration.
