UN Women Libya has strengthened its program presence in Libya, responding to the complex governance, humanitarian, development and security challenges through its triple mandate. The program’s primary focus is women, peace, and security with UN Women supporting women’s participation in peace processes at all levels, and ensuring they respond to gendered experiences, needs, capacities and interests of Libyan women across their diversities. The program is also working to strengthen women’s political participation, ensure gender-responsive economic recovery, coordinate gender mainstreaming within the UNCT in Libya, integrate women’s needs into the current humanitarian response, and ensure their full participation in humanitarian consultations and processes. UN Women Libya works closely with the UNCT, as well as civil society (including through capacity-building support to grassroots CSOs), higher education institutions, and government counterparts. The program is aligned with the UN Strategic Framework for Libya 2019 - 2020, UN Women Global Strategic Plan (2018-2022) as well as the international conventions on women and human rights such as the Convention on Ending all forms of Discrimination Against Women and the Beijing Platform for Action.
