The Client and UNSMIL have been supporting Libyan women during the political transition since the revolution. The support at the political level focused on the election processes, constitution making, and the Libyan political dialogue.

The project is titled AMEL (hope) which provides strategic direction in areas that both agencies are best placed to influence positive changes in the participation of Libyan women during the transition. The project theory of change was stipulated based on best practices and lessons learnt from the previous support to Libyan women. The project has three main outputs: 1) provision of technical assistance and training to women in leadership positions in formal structures of the Libyan Political Agreement; 2) provision of safe space and platforms for Libyan women activists and from civil society organization; and 3) provision of technical assistance to enhance coordination among the international community and among national counterparts to ensure gender is mainstreamed in all interventions that foster support to Libya and enhance the ownership of local partners to deliver on gender sensitive projects and programme.
