From 26 to 28 January 2021, the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD) organised a workshop in Tripoli with four local networks of Libyan CSOs working on migration, which focused on strengthening and operationalizing the networks. The activity took place under the framework of the EU-funded project “Strategic and Institutional Management of Migration in Libya”.
During the months leading up to the workshop, the four CSO networks received coaching from ICMPD, in regard to creating and operationalizing their networks via the development of a common Code of Conduct as well as the networks’ action plans.
The main objective of the workshop was to finalize the action plans that the CSO networks had been working on and adapt them to the country’s situation, particularly considering the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, the CSO networks had the opportunity to discuss possibilities for future collaborations between the networks.
The aim of the “Strategic and Institutional Management of Migration in Libya” project, which is implemented by ICMPD in collaboration with the Libyan National Team for Border Security and Management (NTBSM), is to support the efforts to improve the management of migration flows and the conditions of migrants in Libya.
