UN Launches $313m Fund For Libya | The Precision

The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) and
its partners have launched a $313 million appeal fund for displaced
persons in Libya.

The fund is to cover the basic needs and protection of about 940,000 of such people.
The UN relief agency said millions of people across Libya were
suffering amid the fallout from a protracted political crisis, outbreaks
of violence and displacement.
The Humanitarian Coordinator for Libya, Ms. Maria Ribeiro, said: “The
difficulties people in Libya face in providing for their basic needs
are real and we all need to be aware of the human cost of inaction.
“In my interactions with Libyan men, women and children, I see people
who want to feel safe, have their rights respected and know that they
do not have to live from day to day”.
Libya, which had been in conflict since a disputed election in 2014
following the 2011 toppling of long-time leader Muammar Gaddafi, was the
result of on-going hostilities among rival factions.
There has since been a breakdown of functioning systems within the country, the UN humanitarian wing said.
The 2018 humanitarian response plan, the third coordinated appeal in
Libya, is being launched on behalf of the humanitarian community in
partnership with the Libyan authorities.

The projects aim to assist with deteriorating living conditions by
ensuring civilian protections, in accordance with international law.
This is to ensure basic service access for internally displaced,
returnees and the most vulnerable non-displaced Libyans, including
migrants, refugees and asylum seekers.
The funds would also help to strengthen families’ capacities to cope
with the continued pressures of instability, fragmentation and economic
decline. (NAN)
