6 Develop a global partnership for development

Where we are?

Amidst the Libyan civil war, at least 100 countries as well as multiple supranational organisations and partially recognised states, had formally switched their diplomatic recognition to the National Transitional Council. For its part, following six months of armed conflict, the United Nations in September 2011 established a political mission called the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL).

The mission is mandated by the Security Council (S/2011/580) to help the Libyan authorities extend State authority, including through strengthening emerging accountable institutions, restoring public services, promoting and protecting human rights, particularly for vulnerable groups, and supporting transitional justice.

UNDP´s Work in Libya

Within this framework UNDP Libya - in close collaboration with the national authorities - plays a critical role in coordinating and mobilizing international donors and technical assistance providers (including UN actors), to ensure sustainable and consolidated development, reinforced by deepened partnerships for development.

In light of the ongoing changes in Libya and the subsequent national (re)prioritizing by the newly elected Government of Libya, as well as the mentioned validity concerns of previous MDG data and indicators, UNDP is reviewing and re-aligning its MDG-related programming. As a result, revised targets for establishing global partnerships for development will be published in this section of the website.
