Safety and Access Officer - ACTED Organization


Background on ACTED:

Since 1993, as an international non-governmental organization, ACTED has been committed to immediate humanitarian relief to support those in urgent need and protect people’s dignity, while co-creating longer term opportunities for sustainable growth and fulfilling people’s potential. ACTED endeavors to respond to humanitarian crises and build resilience; promote inclusive and sustainable growth; co-construct effective governance and support the building of civil society worldwide by investing in people and their potential. We go the last mile: ACTED’s mission is to save lives and support people in meeting their needs in hard to reach areas. With a team of 4,300 national staff 300 international staff, ACTED is active in 35 countries and implements more than 490 projects a year reaching over 11 million beneficiaries.

Country profile:

ACTED has been programming in Libya since March 2011. Initially focusing on responding to the humanitarian crisis in the wake of the conflict, ACTED set-up offices across the country, providing vital humanitarian assistance to displaced and vulnerable populations. Furthermore, during this period ACTED utilized its assessment and mapping capabilities to help coordinate and provide information for the humanitarian response and reconstruction of the country. Since January 2012, building on the strong networks developed during the emergency response, ACTED started to work on post-conflict projects, particularly focusing on supporting the nascent Libyan civil society. ACTED is notably implementing the Civil Initiatives Libya (CIL) program which is providing capacity building and technical assistance to Libyan local actors, mainly Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), Local Authorities and Universities. The overall objective of CIL is to define methods and approaches, adapted to the Libyan context, and improve the resilience of communities and local institutions in time of crisis.

Since 2017, ACTED is working in partnership with UNHCR to address the needs of the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) and returnees in the post-conflict areas on both Cash Based Interventions and Quick Impact Projects (QIPs) to respond to life-saving needs through small scale community-based projects.
