The intensification of conflict in Libya has affected millions of people across the country and driven vast numbers into displacement. Furthermore, the conflict has largely impacted the refugee and migrant population making their way towards Europe.
IMPACT was first deployed to Libya in 2011 and 2012 through its REACH initiative in order to support the humanitarian response following the ousting of the regime. As conflict re-escalated, REACH was redeployed to Libya in 2015. Today REACH’s work focuses on multi-sector and sector-specific needs assessments as well as research programmes investigating the impacts of migration flows and the ongoing economic crisis on the country and its vulnerable population groups.
