As many Libyans continued to be displaced within their country due to conflict, the Commission has announced today €6 million in humanitarian aid for 2019.
This brings total humanitarian assistance in the country for 2018-2019 to €15 million. The European Union's humanitarian support for people in need in Libya has reached €44.3 million since 2014. Humanitarian aid is part of the EU's broader support for Libya to address the ongoing crisis in the country. The EU is currently implementing 23 projects worth €70 million in bilateral support to Libya to promote governance, health, civil society and socio-economic development while €318 million have been mobilised under the EU Emergency Trust Fund for Africa for protecting migrants, refugees and internally displaced people in Libya and supporting local communities to cope with the migration challenge.
