Project General Description

The project was approved in June 24th, 2013 under the TFT as a grant and has aimed to enhance the dialogue with the Libyan authorities, explore potential areas for reengagement and collaboration, and improve the Bank’s visibility in the country. Historically, the Bank has had limited engagement with Libya. After the February 2011 revolution, the Bank sought to scale up its support to Libya and approved an engagement note defining the strategic framework for its interventions on May 2014. However, a reassessment of the Bank’s position on Libya was needed in the second half of 2014 due to the worsening of the political and security situation in the country. Consequently, an engagement and guidance note was prepared in March 2015. The proposed project is part of the Bank assistance to Libya’s transition period and reform process. The major project component consists in hiring a senior consultant whose fullfilement is to develop the concept notes for a pipeline of new Bank activities in the country. The outcomes consist in the preparation of a report and presentation on local governance in Libya, in order to intensify the Bank's future activities in Libya.

Project Objectives

The main objective of the project is to recruit a consultant with a goal to enhance the dialogue between the Libyan authorities and the Bank. The consultant was aimed to focus on three main areas including i) operational activities, ii) partner coordination and iii) working to put the country re-engagement strategy into motion.
