UNICEF re-established its office in Libya in 2011 to spearhead emergency preparedness and response. UNICEF scaled up its programmes in 2019 after a Country Programme 2019 – 2020 and its extension to 2021 was approved by the Libyan government and the ExCom.
Since 2011, UNICEF worked closely with the partners to support basic service provision; to build a protective environment for children; and to contribute to evidence generation and evidence-based policy dialogue. Gender, youth, and children on the move were critical cross-cutting priorities throughout the year. UNICEF’s nine Annual Work Plans, signed with relevant line ministries for 2019-20, were revised to incorporate COVID-19 prevention, mitigation and response. Where basic services were not available for the most vulnerable, UNICEF provided humanitarian assistance in line with the Humanitarian Response Plan 2020 with international and national NGO.
