Libya Country Profile

Speeches Shim

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) supports Libya’s transition to a more democratic and peaceful nation. USAID works with municipal councils, national government institutions, entrepreneurs, and a range of civil society groups, including those representing women, youth and marginalized communities, in their efforts to improve Libyan lives.

Our Work

The United States Agency for International Development advances stability and self-reliance in Libya by partnering with government institutions, civil society, and the private sector to strengthen the foundations of a more unified Libyan state.  Development assistance supports the journey to self-reliance by improving the accountability of government institutions to deliver essential services, increasing opportunities for licit economic growth and participation, and enhancing the ability of communities to address drivers of instability and conflict. USAID also provides humanitarian assistance to address the immediate needs of conflict-affected Libyans.






USAID’s Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (BHA) has invested more than $43 million in Libya since 2011, with over $10 million in fiscal years 2018 and 2019 alone, to address the immediate needs of internally displaced and returning populations and assist communities affected by conflict. BHA provides support in areas of  health, protection, humanitarian coordination and information management, logistics, and more.


Since the spread of COVID-19, USAID has committed nearly $15 million to support Libya’s response to the pandemic. USAID is building on its partnerships with the Government of Libya (GoL), Libyan institutions, and civil society to spearhead donor support to the health sector, coordinate self-saving assistance, prioritize investments to respond to evolving public health needs by ensuring delivery of essential services, and provide assistance to spur Libya’s economic recovery.
