Program / Department Summary

The Humanitarian Access Team (HAT) supports Mercy Corps programs throughout Libya in four key areas: assessing access, developing operational and programmatic strategies, crafting advocacy messages, and security.  The HAT focuses on conflict, both individual incidents and trends, both present and forecasted, and then links this with its respective impact on the local population. The HAT analytical unit monitors social media, communicates with partners, validates data through primary sources, and interfaces with relevant international organizations in order to gather and collate relevant conflict, access, and stakeholder information.   The HAT therefore looks not only at violence, but also at those underlying factors that trigger conflict and displacement such as governance and service provision, war economy dynamics, past displacement patterns, local, regional and international politics, social identity and intercommunal relationships, and Libyan modern history.  The HAT also serves as a real-time information hub; vets potential partners; assesses programmatic, partner, and operational risk; identifies and maps stakeholders; and maintains a mapped database displaying program locations, and disaggregates this data by donor and risk threshold.
