This policy brief aims to inform policymakers about the need for greater support to Libyan civil society in their call for an unconditional humanitarian ceasefire.

Civil society in Libya is asking the international community for structural and continued support to enhance human security and promote a response to the COVID-19 pandemic with a gendered approach.
Cordaid’s Libyan partners emphasize the importance for the international community to continue investing comprehensively in women’s rights and human security, rather than to shift their priorities solely to COVID-19 response.
This policy brief has been developed as part of the ‘Women and Youth as Bridge Builders: Strengthening Resilience in Libya” program, implemented by Cordaid and Human Security Collective together with a diverse network of Libyan CSOs under the Dutch National Action Plan 1325. The program is funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
