Overview of position

On September 12, 2023, a state of emergency was declared by the Libyan government, in response to the floods that followed the Mediterranean Storm Daniel. The floods have had a devastating impact on Libya. Thousands of people have been killed, injured, or displaced. The damage to infrastructure is extensive, and the economic and social costs of the floods will be felt for years to come. The heavy rains caused two dams upstream from Derna to burst, releasing a torrent of water that swept away entire neighborhoods. Other areas that have been affected by the floods include the cities of Benghazi, Bayda, and Al Marj. The floods have also caused damage to infrastructure, including roads, bridges, and power lines. The floods have been caused by a combination of factors, including heavy rainfall, poor infrastructure, and climate change. The country has been experiencing a drought for several years, which has made the ground more susceptible to flooding. 

The government has established an Emergency and Rapid Response Committee chaired by MoLG, at the deputy ministerial level to coordinate the response efforts with the local authorities in the affected areas on needs assessment and recovery plans. The government-led crisis response committee has expressed a strong willingness to collaborate with UN agencies in order to enhance and support their response efforts. This collaboration aims to leverage the expertise and resources of the UN to address the challenges at hand effectively. By working together, the government and UN agencies can ensure a coordinated and comprehensive approach to crisis response, leading to more efficient and impactful outcomes.
