    No results found.

    Libya’s ongoing protracted crisis is driven by political instability and economic volatility. Spikes in conflict and ongoing insecurity have led to significant social and economic consequences and high levels of displacement that disrupt markets, limit purchasing power, and undermine resilience and food security. The Libya Humanitarian Response Plan 2020 stresses the need for urgent and continued investment in the agricultural sector to enable households to reduce crisis coping strategies and better adapt to current and future shocks.

    The ongoing civil war has led to a dire humanitarian situation and the destruction of the country’s healthcare capacity and other basic infrastructure. The effects of COVID-19-related restrictions have further exacerbated the situation and increased the vulnerability of numerous households. After the first cases were detected in March 2020, both Governments took steps to control its spread including further border closures, import restrictions and restrictions on the movement of food supplies, as well as the closure of schools, markets and some businesses. Many areas in the country are reporting availability problems for basic food items. In addition, access to food-related commodities such as cooking gas is currently limited and costly. This is due to high inflation, exchange rate fluctuations and liquidity problems. The Import of goods into Libya has also been affected as a result of restrictions imposed by exporting countries, causing a reduction in food supply in Libya. These issues, coupled with an increase in unemployment, are reducing the capacity of households to meet their basic food needs. Numerous Libyans who were considered food secure before the pandemic are now facing food shortages. Migrants, internally displaced persons (IDPs) and refugees are among the most-affected population groups, mainly because their employment sources and opportunities have been severely reduced due to the COVID-19 containment measures. Rural Libyan farmers in the southern region of the country as well as in Benghazi have also been heavily affected. In the framework of the Global Humanitarian Response Plan for COVID-19, FAO has revised its humanitarian response for 2020 to mitigate the effects of the pandemic and address the needs of the most vulnerable households.

    FAO in the 2023 humanitarian appeals 2022

    As 2022 nears an end, almost 1 million people face starvation – almost double the numbers of 2021. Across the world, 222 million people are experiencing high acute food insecurity, almost one in five of whom are struggling to access enough food to survive the day. They are overwhelmingly farmers, fishers, herders and foresters, whose most basic means of survival have been devastated by conflict or extreme weather (drought, floods), pests, disease or the steady disruption of economic turbulence and instability. Agriculture aid is life-saving humanitarian aid. Urgent, time-sensitive agricultural interventions, especially when combined with cash and food assistance, have enormous impacts on food availability, nutrition and displacement, among others, significantly cutting other humanitarian costs. More importantly, such interventions are geared towards meeting the needs and priorities of affected communities – allowing them to remain in their homes where it is safe to do so, meet their own needs and lead their own future recovery. Under the 2023 humanitarian appeals, FAO requires USD 1.9 billion to help almost 50 million people gain access to a steady supply of nutritious food, facilitate their recovery and lay the foundations for resilience to future shocks.
