Background on the project:
Expanding Protection Environment and Services for Mixed Migration Flows and Vulnerable Libyans along Migration Routes in Libya and Supporting Local Socio-Economic Stabilization is a two-year project funded through the EU Trust Fund for Migration. The project is designed to respond specifically to the protection needs of vulnerable migrants and refugees in Libya, inside and outside detention centers (DCs), while stabilizing Libyan municipalities, both socially and economically, and improving access to health and protection services for vulnerable local communities. In particular, this project will allow to better tailor the protection response to the specific needs of the most vulnerable groups, with a focus on women, youth, and all individuals exposed to Gender-Based Violence (GBV).
The project is built around 4 outputs:
The project adopts a holistic and multi-sectoral response that builds on UNFPA’s programme experience, outreach, and technical capacity, while leveraging on existing interventions, resources and UNFPA’s convening capacity position as the UN agency mandated globally and in Libya to coordinate GBV prevention and response.
You will support strengthening the Country Program delivery in the context of results-based management and effective monitoring and evaluation system. You are expected to promote a culture of knowledge building and sharing of best/bad practices and success stories arising from the programs implementation.
