A Political Agreement was signed on 17 December between the rival parties to the current Libyan conflict (which began in summer 2014), which should lead to the formation of a new Government of National Accord (GNA) early in 2016.

UK assistance to Libya and to the future GNA is delivered through the Conflict, Stability and Security Fund (CSSF) which is worth £1 billion this financial year.

The current Libya CSSF allocation for this financial year is £10 million. CSSF support to Libya currently sits across three pillars – Political; Security, Justice & Defence; and Economic – with additional strands of programme work on Migration and Counter-Terrorism planned from 1 April 2016. The allocation for next financial year (starting 1 April 2016) is currently expected to be roughly the same but with the prospect of additional CSSF funding to enable us to scale up once a GNA is in place.
