SAFE Mission to Libya within the EULEAD framework
A delegation from SAFE undertook a mission to Libya in the context of the EULEAD-II project between October 28th and November 2nd, 2021.
The project EULEAD, which started in 2018 and is now in its second phase, aims to support Libya’s institutional development towards a stable functioning country through the deployment of expertise in the area of stabilization and human security. The support is being implemented in complementarity with the European Union in Libya, international partners and Libyan stakeholders, both at local and national levels in a way which reinforces stability and development to lay the groundwork for longer-term reform.
The aim of the mission was to carry out specific on-going activities within the EULEAD project. One activity consisted of performing an assessment and gap analysis relative to the current functioning of the Libyan Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU), operating under the Central Bank of Libya (CBL). In order to do so, SAFE experts conducted direct meetings with FIU and CBL counterparts as well as with other relevant authorities (e.g. local financial reporting entities).
Another relevant activity consisted of meeting the team of the Libyan emergency number 1415. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss ongoing activities implemented in the EULEAD framework – mainly concerning the development of tailored tools useful to facilitate their daily operation – as well as additional actions of further support based on sound synergies outlined in the previous months of the project implementation.
During the mission, the SAFE team also had the opportunity to meet with representatives from the European Delegation to Libya, the EU Border Assistance Mission in Libya (EUBAM), and international partners active at both the local and national levels. These additional meetings were fundamental to further assess current needs and consolidate already solid relationships with relevant partners. This will prove valuable for implementing future coordinated activities with the purpose of supporting Libya’s institutional stability and development.
SAFE is proud to be part of the EULEAD initiative and given the success of this mission and its accomplishments is looking forward to the upcoming activities of the project!
