The European Commission has announced on 12 September an additional €10 million to support Venezuelan refugees and migrants by strengthening the capacities of national institutions, civil society organisations and host communities in the countries most affected by the crisis in Venezuela, namely Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. The assistance is channeled through EU’s Instrument contributing to Stability and Peace. Its approach will focus on strengthening registration and identification capacities for migrants, funding measures to reduce tensions, and addressing the issue of human trafficking, sexual and labour exploitation. According to the latest estimates, Colombia hosts nearly 1.5 million displaced Venezuelans. In total, over four million Venezuelans have left the country in the past two years.
