Project General Description

The proposed operation is a MIC Grant of UA 145,000 to the Government of the State of Libya to support the Technical Assistance Project on capacity building for the Accounting and Financial Training Institute (AFTI). The technical assistance comprises three components: (i) production of Training Needs Assessment and Institutional Capacity Development Strategy; (ii) development of Human Capacity of AFTI; (iii) project management. The project will bridge with an on-going capacity building activity to assure continuity, alignment and efficiency. The work of producing the training plan and strategy will benefit from the experience of ongoing south-south cooperation between the Government of Libya (GOL) and the Government of Morocco (GOM) which is under the support of the Islamic Development Bank (IsDB). The project is to be implemented over a period of maximum 18 months between the fourth quarter of 2021 and the first quarter of 2023, which includes a preparation period (three to four months), training implementation period (minimum six month to maximum ten months) and a finishing period to record and document writings (one to four months depending on the situation).

Project Objectives

The overarching objective of the Project is to enhance the capacity of AFTI for providing sound public financial and accounting trainings to government officials, thereby contributing to a transparent, effective and accountable public financial system in Libya. The project will provide necessary assistance to the AFTI to undertake a Capacity Needs Assessment, which will inform the development of a Capacity Development Strategy for AFTI and any future training activities. The project will also support the delivery of a Public Financial Management (PFM) Training Course either remote or in-person mode.

Beneficiaries

The main beneficiary is the Government of Libya (GOL) through Accounting and Financial Training Institute (AFTI). By implementing these supports, the capacity and knowledge of the AFTI officials will be strengthened. This will result in further strengthening of the entire public institutions’ capacity in Libya in management of public finance.
