The Libya Socioeconomic Dialogue provides a platform for a broad and inclusive range of Libyan stakeholders to jointly formulate a long-term vision for the socioeconomic development of Libya.
The project aims to build knowledge and ownership, and facilitate dialogue and stakeholder engagement around socioeconomic development and good public governance, to pave the way for stable and sustainable growth in Libya and prevent relapse into conflict. The project is divided into the following four intervention areas: normative, participatory, validation and outreach, and technical cooperation and capacity development.
The first intervention area was implemented in 2018 and 2019, and included three studies on the economy, society and governance in Libya. The second intervention area entailed launching the dialogue series and preparing the first draft of the vision. The third intervention area covered the launch and completion of validation activities.
