USAID, along with its partners, provides election-related technical support and advice to Libyan government institutions with election-related responsibilities on topics including electoral regulations and procedures, strategic communications, campaign finance, electoral dispute resolution, and inclusion of marginalized communities. USAID/Libya seeks to strengthen citizens’ confidence in the elected government through ensuring the integrity of elections, allowing them to democratically elect their leaders, who will in turn strengthen their capacity to represent the diversity of interests voiced by Libyan citizens. USAID also supports organizations that represent women, people with disabilities, youth and other marginalized and minority groups to enhance their participation in electoral and political processes.

USAID supports the work of the Constitutional Drafting Assembly (CDA) with expert legal professionals and by supporting the input of women’s rights activists, the disabled community, and other minority groups into the drafting process.

The Libya Local Governance and Civil Society (LGCS) Program, locally known as “Taqarib ” (the Arabic term for coming together or growing closer), aims to strengthen the foundations for a more unified Libyan state. To do this, Taqarib will empower local governments, reinforce community bonds, promote citizen engagement in public dialogue, and prioritize public resource allocations. The program will also link enhancements to service delivery at the municipal level with national efforts to improve the execution of decentralization policy and to further evidence-based reforms.
