Remote work, with some visits to Libya (depending on the situation) and Tunis, Tunisia
Since 2014, Libya has faced waves of armed conflict and political stalemate which has resulted in the emergence of parallel administrations, a government in the East along the UN-backed Government of National Accord in the West, and marginalization of the South. Successive governments have faced difficulty in asserting control amid the proliferation of rival political parties and armed groups, fueled by competing external political agendas. The result has been a steady deterioration of basic services throughout Libya and a fragilized relationship between the central state and the municipalities. This has critically affected the well-being of children across Libya. The UN estimates that around 1.6 million people are affected by the conflict (roughly 24% of the total population) and that 820,000 people are in need of humanitarian assistance, including an estimated 241,000 children and 278,000 women in 2019.
UNICEF has begun to implement its new expanded County Programme (2019-2020) on 1 January 2019. The new CPD is fully funded and has led to a significant and rapid increase in the scale of programmes and operations within UNICEF. The current CPD was developed in close collaboration with the Ministry of Planning and other relevant line ministries. It is fully aligned with the UN Strategic Framework for Libya (2019-2020) and was presented to the government and member states in conjunction with UNDP and UNFPA. The government formally endorsed the CPD in June 2018 and the Executive Board approved it in September 2018.
