The Future of Venezuela Initiative (FVI)
FVI also leverages CSIS-wide resources to advance practical, forward-looking solutions, which will help build a stable, secure, and prosperous future for all Venezuelan people.
Recent programming has focused on:
Sketching “day after” scenarios.
Shaping global response priorities, including humanitarian aid and security assistance global response priorities.
Identifying ways to implement blockchain technology applications, like cryptocurrency, to circumvent censorship and help alleviate the suffering of the Venezuelan people.
Preparing actionable recommendations to:
increase access to basic services such as water, medicine, food, electricity;
reduce violence and insecurity amidst the presence of non-state actors;
halt the environmental degradation in the Amazon due to illegal mining; and identifying leverages to increase women's political participation.
