Libya: Community Responses to the COVID-19 Crisis – Best Practice Guide
In 2020, Covid-19 added a new layer of crisis to Libya, already buckling under the stress of long-term conflict. A consortium of Binda Consulting International (BCI) and the Institute for War and Peace Reporting (IWPR) worked with civil society partners to increase their capacity to identify priorities and implement workable solutions to meet women’s needs more effectively amid the pandemic and heightened conflict.
Engaging women in local development and decision-making processes reinforces community partnerships and ensures that decisions reflect their priorities. This guide, developed as part of the Taking the Lead (TTL) project to support Libyan NGOs respond to Covid-19, provides civil society groups with global examples of community responses to the crisis.
Taking the Lead was funded by the Government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland with the support of the UK Embassy in Libya.
