TRIPOLI – The Italian embassy on Thursday announced in a joint statement with the European Union, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) the establishment of a €50 million program to support basic services in 24 Libyan municipalities.
The program which is in partnership with the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA) is called “Recovery, Stability and Socio-Economic Development in Libya”. It’s a three-year program which is funded by the European Union with €50 million in the framework of the EU Emergency Trust Fund for Africa.
