“I’m convinced that the full commitment of all Venezuelan stakeholders and a greater development and humanitarian investment will drive the country toward recovery and re-institutionalization. That’s why all the actors must walk together toward that shared horizon that we must urgently continue tracing for the country’s present and future.”
Gianluca Rampolla Del Tindaro, Resident Coordinator / Humanitarian Coordinator in Venezuela

UN’s Three Outstanding Contributions in 2022

Reach the most vulnerable people

2.3 million people in vulnerable situations received protection services, participated in food security and livelihood activities, and received nutritional assistance, safe accommodation, energy, and household items.

Support socioeconomic recovery

We contributed to recovering the production sector by developing the abilities of farmers and new companies. Besides, technical assistance was provided to the National Institute of Statistics to continue building its capacity to generate data on the 2030 Agenda and SDG indicators.

Contribute to social dialogue and address human rights

We participated in initiatives to transform and prevent conflicts and violence and promote dialogue, especially with women and youth groups.

UN Cooperation Framework for Sustainable Development (2023–2026)
The UN country team in Venezuela, led by the Resident Coordinator, Gianluca Rampolla del Tindaro, signed a new Cooperation Framework with the Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela on September 23, 2022. This strategic document will guide the UN’s work with its partners during 2023–2026 to substantially improve the population’s quality of life and access to new development opportunities.

Aligned with the country’s strategic priorities, the 2030 Agenda, and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, we will focus on three areas:

1. Improving the resilience and development of the population with a gender perspective, equity, intergenerationality, and a human rights approach.
2. Promoting together the sustainable, resilient, and innovative production development of Venezuela aligned with environmental management and action against climate change, leaving no one behind.
3. Advancing the 2030 Agenda by promoting sustainable, inclusive, egalitarian social cohesion.
