The programme 'Managing mixed migration flows in Libya through expanding protection space and supporting local socio-economic development' aims to reinforce the protection and resilience of migrants, refugees and host communities in Libya, while supporting improved migration management in the country. This programme benefits from a bilateral contribution from Germany.
To better respond to the challenges associated to mixed migration flows to, through and from Libya onwards to the EU, the current action focuses its activities in different locations inside Libya through two different pillars:
The specific objective of the 'Protection' pillar is to: 1) expand the protection space in Libya, with a particular focus on migrants and refugees through both scaling up relevant capacities of national stakeholders and provision of assistance. In particular, the programme aims to improve living conditions in detention centres (in the form of medical assistance, sanitation, etc.), support alternatives to detention, and provide voluntary humanitarian return and reintegration assistance to 15,000 vulnerable migrants stranded in Libya for 2017.
The specific objective of the ‘Local governance and socio-economic development' pillar is to: 2) support socio-economic development at municipal level and local governance, in order to better integrate migrants and stabilize host communities. In particular, it supports the stabilisation of local communities most affected by the migratory flows, via socio-economic development at municipal level, and local governance in order to better integrate migrants, refugees and internally displaced persons as well as foster local cohesion and stability.
