SEBHA Area-Based Assessment (ABA)


Key findings
• Provision of electricity, health and water services is noticeably weak across Sebha, with distinct disparities in access and quality between urban and peri-urban areas, and between population groups.
• In response to a lack of formal infrastructure, residents have constructed ‘informal’ infrastructures such as compartmentalized private water networks or private connections to the electrical grid. While the development of informal service networks shows the resilience of residents, the networks have complicated maintenance and development of formal infrastructure.
• Findings indicate that respondents perceive the municipal council to be primarily responsible for determining who has access to services. However, water and electricity public entity service providers reportedly do not involve municipal governance actors in planning or development of their services beyond the level of coordination of activities.
• Residents reportedly reach out to both formal and informal governance actors for complaints regarding service delivery. These latter actors are not directly involved in service delivery, but they are likely considered to be the most accessible representatives of residents’ interests.
• While tribal connections were important for how residents de ned their community, geographic proximity regardless of tribal af liation also played a signi cant role in the majority of Data Collection Units (DCUs).
• Some population groups face restrictions of movement in parts of Sebha due to community af liation and various security concerns.
