Funding Scheme: 2017-04-13

Pgm2014 2020: Yes


First steps have been taken to implement the Malta Declaration from last February: the EU Emergency Trust Fund for stability and addressing root causes of irregular migration and displaced persons in Africa has adopted today €90 million to reinforce protection and resilience of migrants, refugees and host communities in Libya.


The programme, financed by the EU Emergency Trust Fund for Africa, will support improved migration management in the country. It will take into account the complex socio-economic conditions in Libya and the need to assist all affected populations, including vulnerable migrants, refugees and host communities, internally displaced persons and returnees.

Activities will focus on protection, such as assistance to migrants and refugees through primary healthcare, and socio-economic development and local governance, through strengthening capacities of local authorities to provide services and foster local development and stability.
