Overview of CTG GlobalCTG 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 positionTo respond to the many challenges people in Libya are facing, our client;'s approach is to put the country on a more robust development path by helping the local authorities to restore security, essential services delivery and livelihoods opportunities. With fund from the European Union, our cllient has started the project “Strengthening Local Capacities for Resilience and Recovery.” A three-years initiative that is being implemented in close cooperation with national and international partners. ‘The European Union and our client are working together to support local authorities in Sabratha, Sabha, Murzuq, Benghazi, Ajdabya and Al Kufra with the aim of strengthen their capacities to serve the people through:
Output 1. Local Capacities for Service Delivery

Output 2. Strengthen community security and local model police
Libyan’s formal justice system has been damaged over the past years, with more and more people relying on informal justice and security arrangements. However, studies indicate that Libyans crave the restoration of state in an independent judiciary. The project works with rule of law institutions, including the police, to manage the impact of irregular migration, protect the rights of migrants, and introduce deterrents to abuses of rights.

Output 3. Livelihoods and local economic recovery/development
