UNHCR ramps up response as Ecuador declares emergency

UNHCR Briefing Note, 10 Aug 2018

On August 8th, in response to the massive influx of Venezuelans arriving to the country, the Government of Ecuador declared a state of emergency in human mobility in the provinces of Carchi, Pichincha and El Oro. UNHCR, the UN refugee agency, welcomes and supports this decision, which allows Ecuador to assign additional resources and step up its response and reaffirms Ecuador’s long tradition of welcoming refugees and other persons on the move.
