Libya continues to face a myriad of challenges in building resilience both in terms of preparedness for disasters (man-made or natural) as well as in terms of managing sudden crises. The complexity of the current conflict places great stress on the Libyan society and the political system. As a result, the country is prevented from implementing required measures to strengthen national and local capacities and to effectively formulate a comprehensive framework for disaster and crisis management. Conserted efforts are needed to establish an integrated mechanism that is capable of preparing the nation for disasters and managing crises efficiently.
In the fragile context of Libya, two main crises intersect with one another; the ongoing civil war and the outbreak of COVID 19 global pandemic. Combined, these two have produced severe consequences at every level of the Libyan government and society. If not managed effectively, this multi-faceted crises situation could give rise to new emergencies and/or exacerbate existing conditions with a particularly alarming impact on the most vulnerable. In the mid to long term, there is a need to strengthen capacities both at the government (national/local) and societal levels in order to manage sudden crises and to be prepared for disasters, keeping in the key principle that no one is left behind.
In December 2020, UNDP Libya approved a Project Document in support of the Libyan Government to “Strengthen Governance on Disaster and Crisis Mangement in Libya”, funded by the Government of Italy for the implementation of Phase 1.
