What is the project about?

The Stabilization Facility for Libya aims to strengthen the legitimate and internationally recognized state authorities and foster national unity.  It does this by creating opportunities for peaceful reconciliation locally through community conflict monitoring and reduction, inclusive municipal planning, and practical improvements in basic services in each city where it works.  As the SFL helps the Government to improve citizens’ lives, and to connect more positively with local authorities, it creates the opportunity for Government to demonstrate its value to citizens, and to provide a “peace dividend” as conflict reduces and local conditions improve. 

Objectives

  • To refurbish and re-equip essential service facilities to improve basic service delivery;
  • To boost the capacity of municipal authorities for inclusive planning and delivery of investment and public goods;
  • To help central Government to connect positively with local authorities, supporting their investments in key public goods;
  • To support trust-enhancing relationships between key actors in each city, strengthening and deepening local peace;
  • To build bridges across divides, locally and nationally, to reduce fractures and encourage unity.

What have we accomplished?

  • The SFL has undertaken over 285 investment projects in its seven target cities, restoring power grids and water and sewage networks; repairing primary and secondary schools and rehabilitating universities; rehabilitating hospitals and clinics; enabling municipalities to clear garbage from neglected streets; providing vital equipment, including ambulances to health departments; as well as providing for other municipal needs related to civil defense, public health, access to justice and more.
  • The SFL’s Coordinators in each city work with the municipalities to boost planning and execution of all stabilization activities.  They also meet with service companies on a regular basis to ensure coordination.  The SFL has also trained municipal communications staff so that citizens can find out what local authorities are doing and feed back their views.
  • The SFL’s local partners have advised and trained community groups and municipal authorities to analyse and monitor conflict risks, and to mediate threats as they arise.  This has meant that when problems arise (like a member of one community shooting a member of another community), local groups act swiftly to speak with those involved and calm tensions.  Such local action has built resilient local peace structures which have prevented problems escalating into open conflict.

All activities have been implemented in cooperation with Libyan local authorities.  The choice of interventions is guided by swift social peace assessments, rapid technical assessments, and consultations with local authorities and other relevant local stakeholders. The Facility has also strengthened local peace-making and conflict reduction partnerships with social actors in five conflict-affected cities through Social Peace Partnerships, helping for example to bring into civic life a group of young ex-combatants previously living on the margins of Ubari. In Kikla, the Social Peace Partnership prepared a mechanism for social accountability in the city, developing a forum through which the community can assess progress with development projects and give feedback to the Municipality and the providers
