Stabilization Facility For Libya
The Stabilization Facility for Libya (SFL) aims to strengthen the legitimate and internationally recognized state authorities and foster national unity. It does this by creating opportunities for peaceful reconciliation locally through community consultations, conflict analysis and reduction, inclusive municipal planning, reconstruction of critical infrastructure, and improvement of access to and quality of basic services in each municipality where it works. It also builds capacities of the local authorities and the civil society to better respond to citizens’ needs, increase public trust and accountability, and ensure greater sustainability at the local level.
- To refurbish and re-equip essential service facilities to improve basic service delivery;
- To boost the capacity of municipal authorities for inclusive planning and delivery of investment and public goods;
- To help central Government to connect positively with local authorities, supporting their investments in key public goods;
- To support trust-enhancing relationships between key actors in each city, strengthening and deepening local peace;
- To build bridges across divides, locally and nationally, to reduce fractures and encourage unity.
- Critical infrastructure rehabilitated (a total of 370 priority investment projects completed in 24 municipalities across the country, in addition to 20 projects under COVID-19 response), resulting in the restored and modernized streetlight and water systems, sewage and power networks, as well as restored and improved access to basic services, education and healthcare.
- Capacities of 24 local CSOs strengthened to increase an understanding and overcome conflicts, assess needs, and implement community projects at the local level, and 13 CSOs were awarded Low Value Grants to implement conflict reduction initiatives.
- Direct MHPSS services delivered to conflict-affected populations, resulting in the overcoming of trauma and an improved psychosocial wellbeing.
- Three municipalities supported in the development of medium-term development plans and resource mobilization strategies, resulting in strengthened capacities of local actors, including the local authorities and the civil society, and their transition away from direct assistance towards self-sufficiency, and more strategic, locally-led, medium-term development.

All activities have been implemented in cooperation with Libyan national and local authorities, including the Ministry of Planning, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Local Governance, local councils, as well as international and local NGOs and CSOs, and other key actors.
The interventions have been selected based on social peace assessments, rapid technical assessments, and consultations with local authorities and communities.
SFL has also strengthened local peace-making and conflict reduction partnerships with social actors in five conflict-affected cities through Social Peace Partnerships, helping to bring into civic life a group of young ex-combatants previously living on the margins of Ubari.
In Kikla, the Social Peace Partnership prepared a mechanism for social accountability in the city, developing a forum through which the community can assess progress with development projects and give feedback to the Municipality and service providers.
The SFL’s Coordinators in each city work with the municipalities to boost planning and execution of all stabilization activities. They also meet with service companies on a regular basis to ensure coordination. The SFL has also trained municipal communications staff so that citizens can find out what local authorities are doing and feedback their views.
The SFL’s local partners have advised and trained community groups and municipal authorities to analyze and monitor conflict risks, and to mediate threats as they arise. This has meant that when problems arise (like a member of one community shooting a member of another community), local groups act swiftly to speak with those involved and calm tensions. Such local action has built resilient local peace structures which have prevented problems escalating into open conflict.
