About UNDP in Libya

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.

Many of our initiatives have moved from nationally-implemented projects to direct implementation on the ground.

What do we want to accomplish?

UNDP aims to support Libya’s transition to an inclusive political agreement through urgent rehabilitation of critical public services, expansion of dialogue between different stakeholders, support to constitutional processes underway and strengthened national and local capacities to be able to address the urgent needs of citizens. 

UNDP Libya's Country Programme Document (CPD) (2012-2014, now extended to 2017) has five key outcome areas: 

  • Libyans participate actively in the democratic transition of their nation
  • Central and local government authorities are strengthened to provided better services
  • Libya successfully manages its transition to a state founded on Rule of Law
  • Livelihoods opportunities and economic recovery are enhanced
  • National environmental management systems are strengthened

How do we work?

 In Libya, UNDP partners with the Government of National Accord, municipal governments, non-governmentals organizations, civil societies, the private sector, UN agencies and other organizations.
