OUR PROGRAM

iMMAP has had a presence in Colombia since 2009 and has worked on projects with IOM, OCHA, UNDP and the Resident Coordinator’s Office during its time there. Bogotá has a regional coordination hub to respond to the Venezuela crisis starting in 2017.

Venezuela is facing a worrisome deterioration of living conditions since 2017 due to a combination of falling oil output, international sanctions, spiraling hyperinflation and scarcity of basic goods. The economic crisis has thrown the majority of Venezuelans into poverty and extreme poverty. Some 90% of households indicate they cannot afford to purchase food. The basic food basket is currently six times pricier than the minimum monthly wage. This led to a sharp increase in the migratory flows out of the country during the period, notably towards neighboring Colombia.


CURRENT PROJECTS

iMMAP Support to the Venezuela Crisis
iMMAP is providing the necessary information management capacity required to build a multisector picture of the humanitarian impact of the Venezuela situation. There is one iMMAP Information Management Officer (IMO) who coordinates the wider regional information management from Bogotá. Additionally, four National Information Management Specialists are engaged under the project. The National IM Specialists produce key information management products from Bogotá. The iMMAP Information Management Officer will liaise closely with other information managers working at iMMAP, OCHA and partners, and will provide coordination with UMAIC and other key information management partners operating in Colombia.
