Overview of position
The Stabilization Facility for Libya (SFL) is an immediate stabilization initiative that provides quick rehabilitation of critical infrastructure, and enhances the engagement between the central government and municipalities. The Stabilization Facility will repair light infrastructure within the conflict affected areas to reverse the physical disruption caused by the conflict, and enable the reopening of key services at the municipal level. It may also support quick recovery of businesses that are critical to the survival of whole communities through rehabilitation and provision of equipment. Through these activities it will also aim to boost the capacity of municipalities.
Our client will undertake rehabilitation of light infrastructure and critical businesses destroyed by conflict in East, West and South Libya.
The project will support the following types of infrastructure rehabilitation:
key public infrastructure including clinics, hospitals, schools and police stations and government buildings;
rehabilitation of waste water treatment facilities, and water networks;
rehabilitation of power stations, electricity networks, power grids and other destroyed electricity infrastructure;
