Protection Assessment in Libya (March 2016)

The recent conflict in Libya resulted in intense fighting and triggered continuous displacement of population in major cities of the country. The PAL estimates that 70% of IDPs in Tripoli are in need (43% among them facing acute needs). In Benghazi, findings show that 86% of the IDPs are in need (nearly 50% facing acute needs) and 80% of the residents (15% in acute need). 

The population groups considered most at risk of protection issues are, in order of priority:

1. Internally Displaced Person (IDP) families

2. Refugees and migrants from outside Libya

3. Residents hosting IDPs

According to key informants in Benghazi, the age group considered the most at risk are, in priority order:

1. Older persons (60+ years old, 8.3% of the population assessed

2. Children under 5 years old, 24% of the population assessed

3. Women (18-59 years old), 22.5% of the population assessed
