Review of the Stabilisation Facility for Libya
In 2018, Professor of Practice David Wood conducted an independent assessment of the Stabilisation Facility for Libya (SFL). The SFL was launched in April 2016 as a vehicle for supporting the Government of National Accord (GNA) and the Libyan Political Agreement (LPA). It planned to do this by building the GNA’s public legitimacy through actions that respond to the needs of Libyans most affected by war. By April 2018, the SFL had raised $63,035,881 from 14 donors (collectively the SFL Project Board) – Canada, Denmark, the European Union, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, South Korea, the Netherlands, Norway, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, the United States of America and the Government of Libya. By June 2018, the SFLhad undertaken three rounds of activities across seven municipalities: (1) Benghazi, Kikla and Ubari; (2) Sebha and Sirt; and (3) Bani Walid and Tripoli. Up to this point, the SFL had delivered a total of 64 projects, with 225 in process. SFL projects rehabilitate damaged public infrastructure, such as hospitals and schools, and provide essential equipment, such as ambulances and water pumps. This review was driven by questions over: (1) the relevance and achievability of the political goal; and (2) operational performance in delivering the activities and goal. As part of the review, Professor of Practice David Wood made field visits to Benghazi, Kikla, Obari, Sirte and Tripoli. The review was commissioned by, and delivered for, the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) to Libya.
