What is the project about?

Since the February 2011 revolution, Libya has experienced significant political conflict, and humanitarian and economic challenges. Consecutive Governments in Libya have faced daunting tasks of re-building the political and administrative system for the country’s state institutions. Challenges include a lack of administrative and human capacities; limited technical capacities to address emerging challenges; and a lack of delivery of basic services such as health, transportation and education to the population.

In close coordination with the international community and building on previous experience of supporting Libyan state institutions, this partnership with the Government of the National Accord (GNA) aims to support the government in achieving immediate national priorities and supporting implementation of the political agreements.


  • Provide a safe and neutral platform within the framework of political dialogue to foster confidence between and amongst different stakeholders;
  • Strengthen capacities of GNA to respond to immediate public priorities;
  • Ensure greater capacity of GNA to communicate successes and maintain public support.

What have we accomplished?

  • Supported the Libyan Political Dialogue to bring conflicting parties together so as to secure and increase the support to the Libya political agreement and the Government of National Accord;
  • Held many different meetings between concerned parties to discuss the existing conflicts;
  • Assessed the core government functions assessment of the Government of National Accord with focus on strengthening institutional resilience of core governance institutions in Libya in the following core areas: government employment and public administration (the civil service), Security Sector (Ministry of Interior and Police), Rule of Law (Justice and law enforcement), and Local Governance.
  • Shared key recommendations on critical governance priorities emerging from this comprehensive assessment;
  • In-depth technical review in response to requested support from the PC/GNA to help address issues of the basic functioning of the executive office at the center-of-government (COG), a key core government function;
  • Supported the establishment and operationalization of the GNA communications unit
  • Completed in Dec 2017 a Media Mapping Research Survey applying a mixed methodology to collect robust data.
