With the 2020 ceasefire agreement, a relative period of calm has been prevalent in Libya. Still, years of violence and armed conflicts continue to cast their shadow on Libyans' day-to-day life. The economy is struggling, and basic services such as healthcare, schools, electricity and water continue to deteriorate, while climate change eats away at scarce arable land the country enjoys.

Any potential fighting risks displacing thousands of people and thrusting them into the pain of having to rebuild their lives all over again. Meanwhile, tens of thousands remain displaced across the country. Migrants, in a desperate bid to reach Europe, remain at risk of being trapped or abused.
