Over the years we have re-aligned our support to meet emerging priorities in the country. Since the outbreak of conflict in 2014 and the deteriorating humanitarian situation, we continue to support Libya's transition to an inclusive political agreement, accountable governance, stabilization, economic recovery and resilience.

UNDP aims to support Libya’s transition to an inclusive political agreement through urgent rehabilitation of key public services, expansion of dialogue between different stakeholders, support to constitutional processes underway and national and local capacity building to be able to address the urgent needs of citizens. In Libya UNDP partners with various government actors, non-governmental organizations, civil societies, the private sector, UN agencies and other organization.
