Communication officers from 24 municipalities across Libya attended a three-day technical workshop on strategic communications on 1-3 October in Tunis, Tunisia. The objective of the workshop is to improve communications between local authorities and communities at the municipality level, raise awareness and build ownership on the programme implemented by the three partners in 24 municipalities from different regions in Libya .

Led by partners’ experts and media professionals, the workshop adopts a blended format of instructional sessions and experiential learning aimed at improving access to information about basic and social services at the municipality level. The workshop will enable the participants to develop communication strategies tailored to their context and to communicate about the programme throughout and beyond its three-year lifespan.

The workshop is jointly organized by the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation (AICS), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), in coordination with the Ministry of Local Governance within the framework of the programme “Recovery, Stability and Socio-economic Development in Libya”.

The Recovery, Stability and Socio-economic Development of Libya programme is funded by the European Union, through the Emergency Trust Fund for Africa – North Africa Window. This programme supports the capacities of local public authorities and administrations in providing basic services – health, education, water and sanitation as well as social services – while improving timely and quality access to these services, in particular for the most vulnerable people. It covers 24 Libyan municipalities, benefiting migrants, refugees, Internally Displaced Persons, returnees and host communities alike.
