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

Since 2011, Libya is marked by a very difficult transition, with dire consequences on the political, economic, social and humanitarian fronts. By March 2017, there were at least 256,615 internally displaced persons (IDPs) in various regions of Libya, including 53% children. The number of IDPs in Libya has doubled since 2014 with the intensification of fighting and tribal tensions in the south. This situation will protract with the destruction of homes preventing safe return of IDPs. The most affected areas with IDP arrivals include Benghazi, Misrata, Zintan and the Nafusa Mountain area, Warshafana, Zawiyah and various locations around Tripoli. Tawergha (near Misrata) and Sirt are witnessing return of IDPs and need urgent recovery support given the extensive destruction suffered by the city.  Libya also hosts an estimated 351,382 vulnerable refugees, asylum seekers and migrants fleeing violence, weak economies and political turmoil in North Africa, sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East. These people face discrimination, marginalization and limited access to basic services, and some have been detained in harsh living conditions.

Living conditions of host communities are also affected as they have less access to education, affordable health care, electricity and other key social services. Furthermore, the escalation of violence is increasing the strain over basic services delivery by destroying public infrastructure, exacerbating an already inefficient services delivery system. Since 2011, the Libyan education system witnessed prolonged disruption and the damage to many school facilities. After 2014, half of the IDPs and returnees in the East do not send their children to school. In the north-east and south of the country, schools are hosting IDPs. In Benghazi, 73% of the schools are not functional and enrolment rates dropped by 50%. The country’s rate of school attendance by school-age children fell from nearly 100% to 82% nationally.

The Health system is also suffering destroyed, closed or overcrowded hospitals (20% of public hospitals are not functioning) and acute shortages of staff, essential medicine and supplies in addition to a surge in number of patients given the repeated crises. Around 1.9 million Libyans require humanitarian aid to meet their basic healthcare needs, with particular concern in Benghazi, Tripoli, Derna, Sirte, Al Jifarah, Al Kufrah, Wadi Al Hayat and Ghat. Moreover, around 44% of refugees and 33% of migrants do not have easy access to health facilities due to lack of documentation. Many are also enduring food insecurity challenges, and disruption of water supply, sanitation and electricity services. The south and the east are the most severely affected regions and the IDPs are considered as the most vulnerable, living in unfamiliar environment with limited coping capacities. The direct destruction of infrastructure by the ongoing fighting and the inefficient state management of the available networks are increasing the risk of a total collapse of state services provision, especially with the shortages of technical and financial means for the newly created municipalities to function efficiently.

 

To properly target humanitarian support, achieve stability, initiate recovery from conflict, and plan reconstruction in affected areas, it is vital to have in place a sufficiently robust evidence base upon which monitor the impact of the crisis on the population, including living standards and accessibility to basic services, and to plan and prioritise the needed interventions. This should be reliable, based on statistically sound methodology recognized by government and UN; area-based, in order to identify locations of greatest need and strategic importance; multi-sectoral with analysis that takes into consideration the inter-dependent relationships between sectors as is particularly the case in urban areas. A Rapid City Profiling system is envisaged, which collects and presents statistically sound data at city and neighbourhood level through rapid data collection procedures and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) mapping. The system will need to work at municipal levels, but should be suited for adoption by the Government, where it is expected that the Ministry of Planning, through its Bureau of Census and Statistics and relevant line ministries will have an important function in data and knowledge management and sectoral analysis.

 

Rapid City Profiles: UN-Habitat’s Rapid City Profiles (applied in Syria, Lebanon, Iraq and Palestine) provide spatial analysis of cities and neighbourhoods that take into consideration demographic changes as a result of forced displacement, and reviews the functionality of urban infrastructure and services, including water, sanitation, health and education that may be strained through rapid population influx, damaged due to conflict or neglected. Post Conflict Statistical data: UNFPA’s experience of the Iraq Knowledge Network undertaken in 2012 will be adapted for this Action. It provided the government and the humanitarian community with a common set of indicators that related to post conflict recovery that could also be incorporated into a future census.  Combined Approach for Action Planning: By combining UN-Habitat’s city profiling and UNFPA’s post conflict statistical data; a sound, statistically robust baseline can be formed which can inform on key humanitarian needs and be used to develop – with relevant stakeholders, including municipalities, civil society, service providers and line ministries localised – action plans for stabilization and recovery. The combined approach, through involving the Central Statistics Bureau and developing indicators jointly with Central government, should facilitate the strengthened ownership of Government as well as UN partners, thus becomes a credible tool for joint planning. The product can also be more readily transferred to government, and can help place government in the centre of recovery planning.

 

The objective of this assignment is to assist UN-Habitat Libya programme with the initiation and development of the Rapid City Profiling. Data and analyses already available through other programmes and through this  assignment relevant studies should be complemented and analysed, with additional field work inside Libya (through field researchers and analysts). It will build on data produced by UNFPA for the Humanitarian Needs Overview, earlier key informant data provided by ACTED-REACH and sectoral assessments undertaken by World Banks and UN Agencies, and displacement monitoring by IOM. The following specific objectives are considered:

- Multi-sectoral, Urban Information Analysis and Monitoring Framework and System (UIAMFS) established and accessible to municipalities, national partners, humanitarian and recovery actors.

- Urban information management system established for ongoing monitoring, to be eventually maintained and updated through relevant local and national institutions

- Evidence base for recovery planning purposes established in cities of interest, validated through concrete sampling methodology. (Six City Profiles Four Neighbourhood profiles.)

 

The methodology of producing the urban profiles consists of Household Surveys and focus group discussions (carried out by UNFPA in partnership with the Libyan Bureau of Statistics and Census) and urban functionality assessment, carried out by UN-Habitat in partnership with municipalities.
