The intensification of the conflict in Libya since 2014 caused significant loss of life and displacement across the country. Critical infrastructure was damaged, disrupting basic services such as water, sanitation and electricity supply. Launched in April 2016, the Stabilization Facility for Libya aims to bridge the critical period of transition from humanitarian relief to sustainable development and democratic governance.
Led by the Government of the National Accord (GNA), supported by UNDP and the international community, the Stabilization Facility for Libya aims to help the GNA to demonstrate its value to the country’s citizens in providing visible and tangible results for the population at the local level. Support aims at rehabilitating critical infrastructure; boosting the capacity of local authorities to address the needs of the population; and enhancing local mediation and conflict resolution capacities.
