Since 2011, Libya has been plagued by violent conflict and political instability. This has devastated economic activity and even imposed obstacles to the export of oil, the government’s main source of revenue. The political division has resulted in two parallel governments, further hindering a government-led recovery. This is especially crucial in the Libyan context as the majority of employment is in the public sector and the private sector is still largely crowded out by the appeal of stability in public sector work. In recent years, the country has been dealing with a cash liquidity crisis that permeates all aspects of livelihoods in Libya and complicates normal economic activity. At the same time, access to cash is limited, there are many areas around the country with low banking rates and insufficient use of non-cash transaction methods. Furthermore, unemployment in recent years has ticked up, with youth and women most affected by the crisis.
UNDP’s project Strengthening Local Capacities for Resilience and Recovery (SLCRR Top-up) is funded by the EU, aiming at supporting local authorities in Libya to respond to the many conflicts and human mobility induced challenges - by strengthening the local resilience and recovery mechanisms - that impact negatively citizens’ access to essential services, sources of livelihoods, social cohesion, and security of communities. These will be delivered primarily in targeted municipalities through direct support by UNDP, in cooperation with CSOs, INGOs, and government institutions as well as other development partners. In this exercise, the target beneficiaries are host communities, including internally displaced persons (IDPs), returnees, migrants, and refugees.
In late 2020 and early 2021, violent conflict has declined, a ceasefire has been agreed to, and political dialogue and reconciliation have been progressing. The current environment lays a foundation for a deeper recovery. While rehabilitation and improvement of public infrastructure and services is continuing, livelihood recovery and sustainable capacity development must be enhanced simultaneously to support the resilience of communities that have faced security and economic challenges for a decade.
Local grassroots organizations are often are the forefront of responding to the complex humanitarian, development, and peacebuilding challenges in Libya. Recognizing the existing economic challenges faced by individuals and communities at the local level, aggravated by the impact of Covid-19, UNDP and IOM will implement a project to improve the capacity of Libyan grassroots/civil society organizations focused on contributing to improving livelihoods, economic empowerment. The grassroots organizations in Libya often lack the organizational excellence, capacity to manage and implement complex projects, including financial and grant management, monitoring, and evaluation. The main reason for this is the young age of an active civil society in Libya, which only began in 2011.
The capacity-building initiative will be executed remotely, with the development of scalable e-learning modules in English/Arabic. The e-learning will run using online/offline platform’s capacity, in a self-paced, engaging format, and include progress tracking and completion evaluation criteria for each learner.
The selected learning management platform will be made available to the IC to use in the design of the modern e-learning course, so as to be aware of available creator functionalities. The platform allows generating SCORM files packages, alongside the full variety of content files (videos, audios, infographics, quizzes). UNDP will provide the IC with timely support on Arabic translation for the content, including the digital products created. IC is expected to coordinate with the design contractor on producing the graphics, videos, and animated materials set in the course design by the IC.
