Partnership is at the heart of everything the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) does in Libya. UNDP is working in Libya with local governments and national institutions, civil society organizations (CSOs), private sector, international and local NGO’s, other UN agencies, international financial institutions and the international community to cut across diverse development issues and settings with the aim of supporting the country towards stabilization, recovery and resilience. Helping Libya go back to the development path means providing support to local actors so that they can create the changes that the country needs to deliver basic services in the areas of health, education, water and sanitation, but also economic recovery, security, rule of law, and human rights among others sectors.
Despite the challenges of operating in a conflict affected area and the restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic, UNDP is on the ground to ensure that when working to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals no one is left behind.
UNDP Resident Representative, Mr. Gerardo Noto, is in Libya working together with all these actors that can make the change in the country a reality, strengthening the means of implementation and revitalizing partnership for sustainable development, since as Goal 17 sets, the global goals can only be met if we work together.
