The central role of the United Nations to facilitate an inclusive intra-Libyan political and reconciliation process is based on the Libyan Political Agreement in 2015 and its institutions, UN Security Council Resolution 2259 (2015), other relevant UNSC Resolutions and the principles agreed in Paris, Palermo and Abu Dhabi, as well as the important roles of the African Union and its High-Level Committee of Heads of State and Government in Libya, the League of Arab States, the European Union and the neighboring countries in Libya’s stabilization with particular regard to intra-Libyan national reconciliation, peace and security and political dialogue. Have fully supported the good offices and mediation efforts of the United Nations Support Mission to Libya (UNSMIL) as per the project document of the Political Dialogue Project, UNDP Libya stressed that a durable solution in Libya requires a comprehensive approach that addresses simultaneously the different aspects. At the start of 2020, UNDP supported UNSMIL and international partners with the Berlin Conference on Libya. Prior to the Berlin Conference, UNMSIL and UNDP worked on six baskets to enhance a comprehensive peace process in Libya. The six baskets are: a) political; b) economic and financial; c) security; d) arms embargo; e) humanitarian law; and f) international human rights law matters. In preparation for the Berlin Summit, UNSMIL, consonant with its UNSC mandate and with the full authority of the UN Secretary General, operationalized each of the six thematic baskets and conducted a comprehensive planning exercise that lays out an action plan to be implemented before, during, and after the Berlin process. Supported by the Action, the outcome of the Berlin Conference of January 2020 enabled the three tracks (security, political, economic). Through support of the Project to the UNSMIL-led facilitation process, by the end of 2020 major achievements were recorded, most notably: the cease-fire agreement of October 2020, and the Political Roadmap developed and by consensus endorsed by the LPDF meeting in Tunis in November 2020, which portrays the establishment of an interim national unity government, the holding of the parliamentary and presidential elections and the unification of the institutions.
