Since 2011, Libyan Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), charities and activists have become more willing to address the local needs of their communities in collaboration with the Local Authorities (LAs). As the political situation remains uncertain at the national level, CSOs and LAs are key actors for the promotion of local development strategies addressing the needs of citizens, including the most vulnerable categories present in the community.
With the purpose of a general understanding of the civil society landscape across Libya, ACTED conducted a national CSO consultation between September and November 2018. By creating snapshot of the CSO landscape, it will strengthen the programming activities and support the ongoing projects. The present report summarizes the major findings of the 20 consultation sessions held and aims to provide a snapshot of the context in which CSOs operate as well as their areas of intervention, the challenges they face, and the type of support they need.
This activity was carried out within the framework of the project “Développement communautaire en Libye dans le contexte des mouvements migratoires mixtes” funded by The French Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs (MEAE). The purpose of this project is to empower civil society actors to actively participate in the local economic and social development of their territory. In particular the present project supports civil society organizations (CSOs) operating in 5 municipalities (Nalut, Zintan, Ghadames, Sharqyia, Wadi Bawanees) through capacity building trainings and grants in order to enhance the impact of their work and better address the needs of vulnerable categories in the local community.
