The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is the UN’s global development network, advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. We are on the ground in 177 countries and territories, working with them on their own solutions to global and national development challenges.
At UNDP, external and internal communication is critical to achieving both development results and business objectives. Skillful communication broadens the impacts of new policies, helps governance reforms take root, and attracts and fosters strong partnerships.
UNDP’s “Strengthening Local Capacities for Resilience and Recovery” is a project mainly funded by the European Union. The project focuses on supporting local authorities in Libya to respond to the many conflict and human mobility induced challenges - by strengthening the local resilience and recovery mechanisms - that impact negatively citizens' access to essential services, sources of livelihoods, the social cohesion and security of communities.
The second phase of this project is funded the European Union (EU) programme “Recovery, Stability and Socio-Economic Development in Libya” (Baladiyati), under the EU Emergency Trust Fund for stability and addressing root causes of irregular migration and displaced persons in Africa. The project aims at enhancing provision of basic services at local level and increasing access for most vulnerable groups from host communities - including Internally Displaced Populations (IDPs) and returnees - as well as migrants and refugees.
The EU funded also a top-up of the first phase as a three-year action aiming at supporting local authorities in 20 municipalities in Libya to respond to the many conflict and human mobility induced challenges - by strengthening the local resilience and recovery mechanisms - that impact negatively people access to essential services, the social cohesion and community security, and jobs and the sustainable livelihoods. The project is built around 3 specific objectives: (1) Strengthening responsiveness of local institutions in delivering essential public services to crisis-affected populations and in leading recovery processes; (2) Enhancing communities and local stakeholders’ capacity to improve social cohesion and community security; (3) Strengthening economic opportunities for youth and vulnerable groups (including women) through inclusive and participatory local economic recover.
As an active development agency, UNDP produces knowledge and communications products and publications on a regular basis.
