Local authorities and mayors of 21 southern Libyan municipalities gathered on the occasion of the 6th Steering Committee meeting of the “Recovery, Stability and Socio-Economic Development in Libya – Baladiyati” programme, co-chaired by the Ministry of Local Governance and the European Union. The event marked the launch of substantial interventions to improve stability and socio-economic growth in Libya’s southern municipalities.


Since its inception in October 2018, Baladiyati has successfully implemented over 300 priority interventions on the ground, resulting in substantial benefits for more than 3 million people across Libya. With the expansion of the programme to the southern municipalities, the programme implementors, the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation (AICS), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) aspire to enhance their outreach.


Baladiyati will work with the municipalities to rehabilitate school and community facilities, improve water and waste management systems, develop sustainable energy supply systems, promote private sector development and build skills to improve peoples’ employability on the job market.
