Project General Description

The emergency aid project for humanitarian assistance on the Tunisian-Libyan border is a response to the appeal to the international community launched by the Tunisian state. It is part of the support to national relief efforts and prevention of the risks of outbreaks and spread of epidemics in IDP camps. This emergency aid is granted to support the ICRC and CRT relief plans on the Tunisian-Libyan border. In concrete terms, the donation will help to improve logistics by increasing the capacity, buying vehicles and providing blankets. On the medical side, health facilities such as medical kits and water sanitation systems will help fight the spread of epidemics. In addition to these emergency operations, activities to improve crisis preparedness and contingency planning capabilities are being undertaken as a result of the continuous flow of IDPs to the Tunisian-Libyan border. The total cost of activities is estimated at US $ 1,000,000 for a total duration not to exceed six (6) months.

Project Objectives

The main objective is to provide humanitarian aid to IDPs on the Tunisian-Libyan border, because of the unrest and armed conflict in Libya, to meet their immediate needs. It will also support the huge efforts made by the Tunisian government to address this humanitarian crisis.


The project targets meeting the needs of at least 90,000 displaced people on the Tunisian-Libyan border. Indeed, COAH statistics indicate that 191,748 people have fled Libya since February 17 and new waves of displaced people (about 400,000) are likely to flock to the border if fighting continues.
