Libya: Project Coordinator

Organization: CTG Global
Country: Libya
Closing date: 31 Jan 2017

Overview of CTG Global:

CTG support and manage humanitarian projects in fragile and conflict-affected countries around the world. With past performance in 15 countries – from the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Asia and Central and South America – we offer a holistic fabric of project management, implementation and support. Skilled in emergency response to crises such as the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, we have the ability to act quickly (crisis response teams can be on the ground in 24 hours) and to establish structured operations in high-risk environments. CTG recruit and manage qualified, skilled teams with extensive experience operating in challenging conditions.

Overview of position:

The Stabilization Facility for Libya aims to bridge the critical period of transition from initial period of humanitarian relief towards mid- and long-term structural and sector – specific support. It will include time bound quick interventions at the municipality level that seek to enhance the legitimacy of the GNA within the Libyan population through provision of concrete improvements and peace dividends at the community level through rehabilitation of critical infrastructure, building the capacity of local authorities to address the needs of their population, and enhancing local mediation and conflict resolution capacities and processes.

The Stabilization Facility will be Libyan led, with the Prime Minister or his representative chairing the board jointly with the Deputy Special Representative of the Secretary General, and the activities being implemented in cooperation with Libyan local authorities. The stabilization activities will be guided by quick needs assessments and consultations with local authorities and other relevant local stakeholders, such as civil society organizations, representatives of line ministries and relevant stakeholders. The Facility will be initially limited to specific localities depending on available funding, but must be scalable to encompass the entire state territory.

The Stabilization Facility is an immediate stabilization initiative that provides quick rehabilitation of critical infrastructure, and enhances the engagement between the central government and municipalities. The Stabilization Facility will repair light infrastructure within the conflict affected areas to reverse the physical disruption caused by the conflict, and enable the reopening of key services at the municipal level. It may also support quick recovery of businesses that are critical to the survival of whole communities through rehabilitation and provision of equipment. Through these activities it will also aim to boost the capacity of municipalities.

Role objectives:

UNDP will undertake rehabilitation of light infrastructure and critical businesses destroyed by conflict in East, West and South Libya.

The project will support the following types of infrastructure rehabilitation:

  • Key public infrastructure including clinics, hospitals, schools and police stations and government buildings.
  • Rehabilitation of waste water treatment facilities, and water networks.
  • Rehabilitation of power stations, electricity networks, power grids and other destroyed electricity infrastructure.
  • Rehabilitation of roads and bridges.
  • Rehabilitation of small businesses that are critical to the community (e.g. bakeries).
    UNDP will also require provision of equipment that will complement the works, including:
  • Provision of equipment including alternative electricity sources.
  • Provision of equipment to small businesses being rehabilitated.
    The first step of the project will be to undertake a participatory rapid needs assessment in the first three locations where the Stabilization Facility will start working in, including a location in the East, West and South Libya.
    The rapid needs assessment will cover the following areas:
  • Examination of damage to critical infrastructure causing disturbance in public service delivery, as well as to any businesses that are critical to the community.
  • Determining the financial requirements of short-term rehabilitation based on a rapid estimated costing exercise.
  • A mapping of already on-going interventions to make sure the project will not duplicate any existing initiatives.
  • An understanding of conflict and social peace dynamics in the municipality to make sure that interventions remain conflict sensitive and contribute to stabilization in the municipality.
    The Project Coordinators will be responsible for the needs assessment process in their location and will work closely with the Field Engineers who will help assess the damage and estimate the cost of rehabilitation. During the needs assessment phase the Project Coordinators will work closely with the needs assessment Team Leader. Once the needs assessment is completed the Project Coordinators will help facilitate local prioritization exercises to agree on local priorities and an action plan. Once the action plan is agreed upon, the project coordinator will be responsible for the day-to-day monitoring of the project progress in their location.

  • Support the needs assessment Team Leader in drafting the methodology for the needs assessment including the questionnaires for each sector.
