The ongoing political, human rights and socio-economic deterioration in Venezuela has led to the outflow of millions of Venezuelans into neighboring countries.  USAID supports programs that are helping Venezuelan migrants and refugees secure sustainable livelihoods in their new host countries.

This project is implemented by World Vision Perú; it has the objective of helping Venezuelan professionals and technicians obtain local recognition of their degrees and certifications to be able to find work in their corresponding area of specialization.  Since the Venezuelan migration crisis began in 2017, World Vision has been developing projects to support the Venezuelan migrant and refugee population through programs funded by USAID. This strategy is aligned with USAID priorities, including promoting self-reliance and assisting vulnerable populations through increased access to credit and financial services for refugees and migrants; in order to reduce barriers to formal employment for professionals.

USAID concibe y anhela una cuenca amazónica saludable y resiliente que sea valorada por la sociedad, que garantice el bienestar humano y proteja nuestro clima global. La región amazónica alberga un tercio de las especies de plantas y animales conocidos en el mundo, muchos de los cuales no se encuentran en ningún otro lugar, y es el hogar del sistema fluvial más grande del mundo, que representa el 15% del agua dulce que alimenta a los océanos del mundo. El creciente desarrollo económico y la extracción insostenible en la Amazonía están llevando a la sobreexplotación, contaminación y degradación de sus preciosos recursos.

USAID envisions a healthy and resilient Amazon Basin that is valued by society, ensures human well-being, and safeguards our global climate. The Amazon Region hosts a third of the world’s known species of plants and animals –many of which do not occur anywhere else– and is home to the largest river system in the world, representing 15 percent of the freshwater feeding the world’s oceans. Unsustainable economic development and illegal extraction of resources is causing contamination and degradation that threaten the entire Amazon ecosystem.

Existen grandes áreas de selva tropical intacta que aún cubren la región amazónica de Madre de Dios y Loreto, pero la expansión descontrolada de la extracción de oro aluvial, a menudo ilegal, está afectando la salud humana y ambiental.
