Overview of position
UNDP’s project ‘Strengthening Local capacities for Resilience and Recovery’ is a three-year initiative, funded by the EU, aiming at supporting local authorities in Libya to respond to the many conflict and human mobility induced challenges – by strengthening the local resilience and recovery mechanisms – that impact negatively citizens’ access to essential services, sources of livelihoods, the social cohesion and security of communities– including internally displaced persons (IDPs) and returnees – migrants and refugees.
The project will prioritize activities and investments at the local level that can reduce conflict-induced vulnerabilities, for host communities across Libya. More broadly, it will undertake activities and investments that can address pre-conflict horizontal inequalities between regions and social groups, that are related to gender, age or ethnic status. The project – which will be implemented through conflict-sensitive approach – will offer support to local actors in achieving concrete results in three areas: 1) service delivery; 2) social cohesion and community security; and 3) livelihoods and local economic recovery/development.

Needs assessment and gap analysis should be matched with feasible and implementable actions suggested for further project implementation. UNDP management approval will be required for each milestone.
