UNDP is working rapidly to respond to the crisis in Libya by undertaking projects to help stabilize the country and instill trust and confidence amongst communities, and between communities and the government. The UNDP Libya Country Office (CO) has made strong commitments to international donors and its Libyan counterparts to help restore and improve public services; enhance the effectiveness and reach of existing public institutions; expand civic engagement and participation in political and development processes; increase economic opportunities in a more diversified economy; strengthen social cohesion, reconciliation and transitional justice initiatives; and contribute to stability throughout the country to ensure development gains.
“Strengthening Local Capacities for Resilience and Recovery” (SLCRR) is a multi-year and multi- phase action funded by the EU aiming at supporting local authorities in Libya to respond to the many conflict and human mobility induced challenges that impact negatively people’s access to essential services, sustainable livelihoods, social cohesion and community security.
The overall objective of the project is to contribute to improving the living conditions and resilience of vulnerable populations (including migrants, refugees, IDPs, returnees and host communities) in selected municipalities and communities across Libya.
The project is built around three specific objectives:
