Participatory Diagnosis Libya: impact of Covid19 and climate emergency on human rights This call for services is part of the poject: 

« WAHDA – Strengthening Tunisian civil society for the defense of civil and political rights and the  promotion of social cohesion to advance the management of the crisis of COVID-19, the political  transition of the country and regional stability”,  

funded by the Catalan Agency for Development Cooperation (ACCD) through the call for projects  ACC010/20/000033. 


Submission deadline: May 28th 2021 

Before 23:59 (Tunisia local time) 



  1. Context 

Recently, Libya has taken very important steps towards national reconciliation and political stability.  However, human rights abuses continue to be prevalent. The use of force to disperse peaceful anti corruption protests in Tripoli between August 23 and 29, arbitrary detention, torture, and the  disappearance of numerous people in the capital, are clear examples of these violations that have  taken place over the past year. 

Unfortunately, the human rights violations of the Libyan population have become even more  pronounced in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. Indeed, the pandemic has exacerbated pre existing structural inequalities, as is the case for ethnic minorities in the south of the country who have  always suffered from a lack of access to health services. In addition, the measures imposed under the  pretext of containing the transmission of the virus have also had negative consequences. Whether at  the national level, such as the restriction of movement that has prevented the mobilization and action 

of human rights defenders, or at the international level: the case of refugees and migrants who, in  addition to continuing to be mistreated by the authorities, militias or criminal gangs, have seen the  United Nations temporarily suspend their repatriation and resettlement programs. 

Human rights have ceased to be a priority, remaining second or third (at best) to health measures to  control the pandemic. This is combined with the lack of attention to the challenge of climate change,  despite the fact that it will have serious consequences for the MENA region on issues such as resources  and migration. All of which creates the risk of new human rights violations. 

In a country like Libya, after years of violence and destruction of the social fabric, any hope for  transition and socio-political transformation will be conditioned by the capacity of civil society to be  included in the challenges ahead. All this with the aim of being able to respond to the needs of its  population in general, and in terms of human rights in particular, and to establish a clear policy in the  face of the challenge of climate change. 

  1. WAHDA Project presentation 

Within this framework, the WAHDA (unity in Arabic) project aims to strengthen the role of civil society,  especially women and youth, in defending civic space through the protection of civil and political rights,  social cohesion and political-social advocacy to improve democratic governance with a gender and  regional perspective in the context of the limitations of civil and political rights justified by the Covid 

19 crisis. Initially, it aims to improve the accessibility and quality of knowledge on the impact of the  management of the Covid-19 crisis and the climate emergency on human rights in general, and civil  and political rights in particular, with special attention to vulnerable communities, in Tunisia, Algeria  and Libya, through the development of capacities and tools for monitoring, systematization and data  analysis. 

  1. Mission objective 

To establish a participatory diagnosis on the impact of the COVID-19 crisis and the climate emergency  on human rights in Libya, with an EfD (education for development) approach.

  1. Mission description 

The mission consists in developing a report on the impact of the COVID-19 and the climate emergency  on human rights in Libya. This report, the details of which will be defined with NOVACT, will be carried  out through a participatory diagnosis with a special focus on the most vulnerable groups, with an  emphasis on gender (identification of existing inequalities, power relations, systematic violations of  rights, needs of respondents). The participatory diagnosis and report writing will take place in  cooperation with our collaborating entity: the University of Zawia in Libya. The researcher will go to  the field (health situation permitting) to develop the participatory diagnosis.  

It is important to emphasize that the results of this report will be directed to TdO (duty holders, i.e.  national governments and international organizations), TdR (responsibility holders, i.e. civil society  organizations) and TdD (rights holders, young men and women) in Catalonia to better understand the  challenges of this country and their civil society in the context of COVID-19 and the climate emergency.  

The steps planned for this mission are:  

– Define the methodological framework of the diagnosis: general objective, specific objectives, targets,  timeline, methodology, etc. 

– Draft the work plan which should include a field visit to conduct individual and group interviews with  TdRs, TdOs and TdDs. The University of Zawia will be able to support this visit and can suggest key  people to contact. 

– Set up a participatory diagnostic to collect data (via individual and group interviews) from public  authorities, CSOs, social and political leaders, informal groups, youth, women and academics. Zawia  University will provide support in terms of logistical and strategic organization of the diagnostic. – Write an analysis of the data collected (taking into account the perception of the different  stakeholders of the diagnostic) and highlight the needs. Clearly explain the chosen methodologies and  the tools used. 

– Analyze and document the obstacles, barriers, contributing factors and inhibitors that affected the  data collection.

– Highlight the needs, threats and opportunities regarding the respect of human rights in Libya. – Produce a report and executive summary (including key findings). 

– Include the formulation of recommendations. 

– Participate in sharing the report with other actors through publication, dissemination and feedback. 

The report will then be edited and the executive summaries translated from English into Arabic,  Catalan, Spanish and French. The goal is for this report to be disseminated internationally, with the  support of the UNIMED inter-university collaboration network (www.uni-med.net). It will also be  presented in Barcelona in order to raise awareness and influence Catalan TdRs and TdDs specialized in  the subject and with responsibilities in Catalan foreign policy in the Mediterranean.  

Target groups: The TdDs and TdRs will be the main protagonists of the participatory diagnosis  implemented by the researcher hired by NOVACT. It will be supported by the University of Zawia for  the identification of key persons to be interviewed and logistical support; and UNIMED for the  dissemination of the report at the international level. 

The participatory diagnostic will include at least: 10 representatives of CSOs (ensuring that at least 4  entities are women and/or women’s rights advocates); 10 representatives of local communities (half  of whom will be women); 5 experts from universities or research centers (half of whom will be women);  and 5 representatives of public authorities and/or other political actors (such as political parties,  movements, etc.). 

  1. Expected deliverables 

Scoping Note: Based on the review of key documents and exchanges with the various project partners  (NOVACT, University of Zawia, etc.), the scoping note defines and formalizes the envisaged  methodology, specifies the evaluative questions, presents the necessary data collection instruments  (interview guides, etc.) and proposes a realistic work plan with a detailed and definitive timetable The  scoping note will be submitted to the Steering Committee for comment and validation. The scoping  note will be produced in English.

Preliminary findings and recommendations: A draft of the final evaluation report will be produced at  the end of the field phase. It will be submitted to the Steering Committee for comments and discussion.  The project holders have two weeks from the receipt of the draft report to make comments and  observations. The final evaluation report should take into account the comments made by the Steering  Committee on the draft report. The language of the report will be English. 

Final Report: The final report will be in a single publication format and in English. Executive Summary: A shortened version of the report presenting the background and main findings.
