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 refugee and migrant flows directed towards Europe.
REACH was first deployed to Libya in 2011 and 2012 in order to support the humanitarian response following the ousting of the regime. As conflict re-escalated, REACH was again deployed to Libya in 2015, and today the work of REACH focuses on multi-sector needs assessments and research programmes investigating the impacts of migration flows in and to the country. Furthermore, REACH conducts regular market monitoring activities to map the impact of the economic crisis as well as to provide up to date information to the actors providing cash-based aid in the country.
