With about €1 million funding from the EU under a resilience and recovery initiative implemented in partnership with UNICEF and the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation, and with €1.75 million from the Stabilization Facility for Libya, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) will be able to help Ghat municipality assist flood-stricken people in getting access to health, food, water and environmental sanitation among other sectors.
