Situation Report


The Field Coordination Hubs liaise with local authorities and partners to support needs assessments, response implementation, and advocacy on logistics and access issues.

The Humanitarian Country Team, under the leadership of the Humanitarian Coordinator, agreed on the methodology and timeline for the Humanitarian Programme Cycle 2021. As a follow-up, consultations were held with national and international NGOs, as well as donors. The Inter-Cluster Group in consultation with cluster partners is working on an updated analysis focusing on the impact of COVID-19, and a light review of Plan 2020 projects.

To strengthen partners' capacities, OCHA, with the support of the Norwegian Refugee Council, organized six workshops on the practical application of humanitarian principles to highlight the importance of principled action to address daily challenges. Some 115 participants representing 86 humanitarian organizations took part in the workshops.

To strengthen the Accountability to Affected Populations in the framework of the Humanitarian Response Plan, OCHA and UNICEF, with the collaboration of several organizations, completed the first Inter-Agency Course for the Integral Approach of Accountability to Affected Populations (AAP) in Venezuela, in which representatives of some 60 humanitarian organizations participated.
