According to the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the European Union has allocated more than 1.6 billion US dollars for the protection and education of children in Libya, as well as COVID-19 vaccination-related medical waste management.
“EU Civil Protection & Humanitarian Aid – ECHO has allocated approximately USD 1,672,874.91 towards strengthening humanitarian response in the education and child protection sectors.”
According to UNICEF, the initiative would be implemented through consolidating and enhancing sector cooperation as well as investing in sectoral capacity with committed resources.
According to the statement, the initiative would assist 1,343,192 individuals, with 122,000 of them being youngsters aged 5 to 9.
“Additional emphasis has been placed on creating a safe environment for children, as well as contributing to and strengthening national capacity in evidence production and evidence-based policymaking,” according to the statement.
In accordance with the Humanitarian Response Plan, UNICEF offered direct humanitarian aid to the most vulnerable in cooperation with national and international NGO partners.
The action will also aid in the development of sector capacity via collaborative evaluations, advocacy, resource mobilization, and training.
The activity is intended to promote sexual exploitation and abuse (PSEA) prevention by mainstreaming PSEA in both sectors, including training of sister United Nations agencies, international non-governmental organizations, and local civil society groups.
It will also assist the COVID-19 inoculation campaign in Libya, concentrating on medical waste management in distant regions to reduce the risk of health-care-related illnesses connected with COVID-19 vaccination and medical and biohazardous waste.
