OVERVIEW OF CTG GLOBAL

CTG support and manage humanitarian projects in fragile and conflict-affected countries around the world. With past performance in 15 countries – from the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Asia and Central and South America – we offer a holistic fabric of project management, implementation and support. Skilled in emergency response to crises such as the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, we have the ability to act quickly (crisis response teams can be on the ground in 24 hours) and to establish structured operations in high-risk environments. CTG recruit and manage qualified, skilled teams with extensive experience operating in challenging conditions.

 

OVERVIEW OF THE POSITION

The Stabilization Facility for Libya aims to bridge the critical period of transition from initial period of humanitarian relief towards mid- and long-term structural and sector-specific support. It will include time bound quick interventions at the municipality level that seek to enhance the legitimacy of the GNA within the Libyan population through provision of concrete improvements and peace dividends at the community level through rehabilitation of critical infrastructure, building the capacity of local authorities to address the needs of their population, and enhancing local mediation and conflict resolution capacities and processes. The Stabilization Facility will be Libyan led, with the Prime Minister or his representative chairing the board jointly with the Deputy Special Representative of the Secretary General, and the activities being implemented in cooperation with Libyan local authorities. The stabilization activities will be guided by quick needs assessments and consultations with local authorities and other relevant local stakeholders, such as civil society organizations. The Facility will be initially limited to specific localities depending on available funding, but must be scalable to encompass the entire state territory.

 

Programme Outputs

 

Output 1. Light infrastructure destroyed by conflict rehabilitated and recovery of critical businesses supported

 

The direct infrastructure damages caused by the conflict in Libya have led to destruction of water facilities, roads, police stations, clinics and schools in Libya, negatively affecting basic service delivery and in some instances causing a dire situation where no functioning school or hospital is available to citizens.  The project will finance undertaking of light repairs of key public infrastructure including clinics, police stations, water facilities, power grids, government buildings and access roads. It will also be used to finance rubble removal and waste collection. The activities will include the rehabilitation of critical businesses that were destroyed by the conflict and have an impact on the whole community, such as bakeries in places where they were destroyed and communities are forced to bring bread from elsewhere. Finally, key equipment will be provided to municipalities and critical businesses to enable the proper recovery of the services (for example generators in cases of lack of power supply).

 

UNDP 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;

• Rehabilitation of roads and bridges;

• Rehabilitation of small businesses that are critical to the community (e.g. bakeries)

 

UNDP will also require provision of equipment that will complement the works, including:

• Provision of equipment including alternative electricity sources.

• Provision of equipment to small businesses being rehabilitated.

 

Output 2. Immediate capacity boost to municipalities provided

 

The mounting needs for rehabilitation and recovery of critical infrastructure in the conflict affected areas of Libya, combined with the limited ability for municipalities to take charge of stabilization of their municipalities due to budgetary, human resource and other constraints, calls for immediate support to municipalities. This requires improved interaction between the central government and the Libyan municipalities and local authorities. It also calls for strengthening the municipality technical capacity to follow and monitor the stabilization activities within the quick implementation period.

 

This output will be used to finance technical support to municipalities, boosting their capacity to cope with the challenges arising during stabilization period. The intention is to recruit and deploy technical experts to support local authorities to monitor the stabilization activities, as well as supporting inclusive and participatory prioritization processes, related coordination, planning, implementation, and monitoring jointly with the relevant line ministries. It will also mean deploying engineers to monitor the infrastructure works taking place in the municipality.

 

Output 3. Local conflict analysis, facilitation and mediation capacity strengthened

 

The conflict in Libya has had a destructive impact on social cohesion within the Libyan society, and the localized fighting is leading to an ever deepening disintegration of the society. At the time of transition, dialogue between the central government and local authorities will be crucial. In the past, conflict resolution in Libya was largely retroactive mitigation of escalation of conflicts by tribal and other traditional leaders. Moving towards a modern state, municipal and other local authorities will need to learn to play a key role in mediation and more preventative conflict resolution.

 

The activities under this output will contribute to the initial stabilization efforts at the community level and will start paving the way for a new culture wherein conflicts are negotiated more peacefully bringing together the new and old local authorities as well as civil society actors. Efforts to resolve conflicts at the local level will require locally led processes to undertake conflict analysis to better understand the causes of tension. The conflict analysis undertaken will help ensure the conflict-sensitivity of the stabilization interventions.
