Venezuela Food Security Assessment
ROME – The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) was invited by the government of Venezuela to conduct a food security assessment to estimate the needs and vulnerabilities of Venezuelan households.
WFP had full independence to design and implement the assessment and had access countrywide to collect data at the household level without any impediment or obstruction.
The results of the food security assessment have been shared with the Venezuelan government and have now been published.
WFP looks forward to a continuation of its dialogue with the Venezuelan government and discussions that will focus on the way forward to provide assistance to those who are food insecure.
