Arab Human Development Report 2016: Youth and the prospects for human development in changing reality
The report examines challenges and opportunities facing youth in the Arab region, especially since 2011, and seeks to provide an overview on youth in the region and stimulate a broad dialogue between youth and key stakeholders on the future of development in the region, focusing on the role of youth as critical partners at this very point in time.
Led by national and municipal Libyan institutions, The Stabilization Facility for Libya aims to strengthen the legitimate and internationally recognized state authorities and foster national unity for all Libyans. Under SFL—Stronger for Libya, UNDP works first with local partners, giving an effective voice to women and youth, to identify tailored stabilization goals. The SFL then seeks to ensure that the local strategies flow from, are linked to, and contribute to reaching the national goal of recovery and stabilization. The Facility is providing quick rehabilitation of critical infrastructure and delivering equipment to support local authorities to help improve services to citizens.
With fund from the European Union, UNDP has started this three-years initiative that will be implemented in close cooperation with national and international partners. The aim is to strength local authorities capacities to serve the people in Tripoli, Sabratha, Sabha, Murzuq, Benghazi and Al Kufra.
UNDP is the UN’s global development network, an organization advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. We are on the ground in some 170 countries and territories, working with them on their own solutions to global and national development challenges. As they develop local capacity, they draw on the people of UNDP and our wide range of partners. UNDP has been working in Libya since 1976. Over the years we have re-aligned our support to meet emerging priorities in the country. Since the outbreak of conflict in 2014 and the deteriorating humanitarian situation, we continue to support Libya's transition to an inclusive political agreement, accountable governance, stabilization, economic recovery and resilience.
