Résumé du poste
After an armed and civil uprising ended Muammar al Gadhafi’s regime in late 2011, the authorities have had difficulties to address pressing security issues, reshape the country’s public finances, or create a viable framework for post-conflict justice and reconciliation. Thus, since 2014, non-state armed groups have disrupted Libya’s political transition. In 2018, continued political instability, ongoing-armed conflict in Libya, particularly internal struggles between local militias, and the collapse of economy, have led to deteriorating living conditions and reduced access to essential services in most of the country. Civilians continue to suffer from unsafe living conditions, with little or no access to health care services, essential medicines, safe drinking water, shelter and education.
In late 2017, suffering from armed combats for several years, Benghazi area was hosting about 45.000 internally displaced people (IDP) coming from different areas in Libya, and 147.000 returnees. Benghazi appears to be, with Tripoli, one of the two main cities to host the more IDPs. Otherwise, while the political situation in Libya remains tumultuous, new patterns of displacement are occurring, with a growing trend of returns reported in the East, and especially in Benghazi. Benghazi and its surroundings appear to be particularly vulnerable locations due to the high damage inflicted by three years of heavy clashes. The tensions between the Tebu and the Zway tribes seriously affects the health system and the access to basic services. Tribe communities, when they are a minority in the area, are suffering from segregation in most of Al kufra’s institutions, including health care facilities. This occurs in a context of underdevelopment and poverty that exacerbates the impact of the conflict on the population in the region. Indeed, this area has been suffering, even before the conflict, from a poor investment from the central government. However, few information are available on this area and its humanitarian needs due to a poor, if not almost inexistent, presence of NGOs.
