Ongoing Political Instability Fuels Humanitarian Crisis in Libya

Resource date: Oct 2019


Prolonged conflict and a recent escalation of violence in Libya are taking a heavy psychological toll. In the last 12 months, conflict in populated areas has directly affected an estimated 1.62 million people. UNFPA and partners launched the Rapid Response Mechanism in April 2019, quickly reaching 9,500 newly displaced. Eight mobile teams and four Women and Girls Safe Spaces are providing psychosocial support and gender-based violence awareness activities to meet rising needs. From April to July 2019, psychological first aid and counselling were provided to 8,211 internally displaced persons.
