CTG Global is a managed service company specializing in Recruitment, Management Consultancy, Human Resources support services and Monitoring & Evaluation in post disaster and post conflict countries around the world.

CTG Global provides services to humanitarian organizations, government, non-governmental organizations and corporates that enables public and private sectors to focus on their core business and the achievement of their objectives in hostile and threatening environments as we provide a safe and secure environment for them to do so and alleviate them of their risks, crisis and personnel management problems.



The client has had a long standing commitment to support Libya in its efforts to strengthen institutions capable of delivering services and responding to the needs of the population. Since the start of the transition, the client has supported national efforts at reform working with multiple sectors and partners to realize the objective of successful transition and sustainable human development.

Since July 2014, the political scene has entered a new phase marked by ongoing conflict and unpermissive security environment in many places in the country. In the meantime, the majority of municipalities seen successful elections and are increasingly looked upon as instruments to advance the interest of the populations and overcome multi-dimensional challenges. A core of the client strategy in Libya is to work on strengthening local governance and in this case partnering with municipalities and strengthening their capacities is key. As a result, the client has sought to readjust its programme to account for the new context and has a Programme Inception Plan (PIP) for Libya’s Strengthening Local Capacities for Resilience and Recovery Programme (SCL2R). This PIP pursues a dual objective: i) to increase the capacity of local actors, in particular municipal governments, to mitigate the increasingly devastating impacts of the conflict on Libya’s civilian populations and therefore contribute to the resilience of Libyan communities; and ii) to help pave the way for full-blown recovery that will put back Libya on a sustainable human development course when sufficient stability prevails. In the current political and institutional context in Libya, where central leadership is highly contested and increasingly ineffective, the SCL2R prioritizes the sub-national level as level of intervention and follows a theory of change whereby positive change can be engineered from below in situations of near state collapse, as currently in Libya, and in particular whereby a new social contract can emerge from improved trust-based relationships between populations and their local governments. While the client conceives building resilience and assisting recovery in Libya as necessarily a long-haul effort, this Programme Inception Plan (PIP), drawn for one year, attempts to tackle immediate capacity building needs to support bottom-up stabilization and recovery efforts, and to pave the way for a more strategic national recovery dynamic in the future.

Under the direct supervision of the National LGLD Advisor, the Regional LGLD Advisor will contribute to the client’s support to the Programme Inception Plan (PIP) and the implementation of the SCL2R programme.
