The BetterTogether Challenge

The U.S. Agency for International Development and the Inter-American Development Bank are partnering for the BetterTogether / JuntosEsMejor?Challenge, a global initiative to crowdsource, fund, and scale innovative solutions from Venezuelans, wherever they are, and innovators worldwide to support Venezuelans and host communities affected by the regional crisis.

USAID and the Inter-American Development Bank launched the Better Together Challenge in Miami, Florida on October 21, 2019.

The Regional Crisis

Venezuela’s political, humanitarian, and economic crisis has led to severe shortages of food, electricity, medicine, water, and other basic needs. The crisis has driven nearly?4.5?million people to flee the country, the largest external displacement of people in the Western Hemisphere’s history. This outflow of Venezuelans has had a growing social and economic impact on neighboring countries in Latin America and the Caribbean, including effects on public services, labor markets, community relations, and infrastructure.

How the Challenge Works

The BetterTogether?Challenge will:

  • Elevate Venezuelan voices and ingenuity to convey and answer needs inside Venezuela and across the region;
  • Connect Venezuelans, host communities, and the world’s collective genius to develop innovative solutions;?
  • Expand networks across communities and countries to promote relationships and collaboration;
  • Fund, test, and scale solutions; and
  • Build a marketplace of tested, market-ready solutions.

Where We Work

Proposed solutions can be implemented in the following countries: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Panama, Peru, Trinidad and Tobago, and/or Venezuela. This list may change as the situation evolves.
