Overview of position

Since 2011, Libya has witnessed violent conflict and political instability. The people living in Libya suffer the collapse of public services, especially education and health, higher prices through cuts to food and fuel subsidies, conflict-related loss of shelter and livelihoods and major setbacks in ensuring the safety of citizens and the rule of law. Furthermore, approximately 1 million people, including internally displaced persons (IDPs), returnees, vulnerable non-displaced Libyans, migrants, refugees and asylum seekers, are in urgent need of humanitarian assistance, access to services and jobs. Many IDPs and returnees also face tensions with resident communities given the conflict history and this represents an additional burden for already-stretched local conflict management platforms. In such context, local-level actors, including municipalities, find themselves at the frontline trying to respond to urgent needs of the local population.
