Program / Department Summary 

Mercy Corps’ has developed a Crisis Analytics function to support our programming in the most complex contexts, including Syria, Libya, Democratic Republic of Congo and others. The Libya Analysis Team supports Mercy Corps as well as the wider aid response throughout the country through the provision of quality, timely and relevant analytical products.  The analysis team develops these outputs through primary and secondary collection of qualitative and quantitative data. The team looks at social, political, economic and security issues, including underlying factors that trigger conflict and displacement such as governance and service provision, the war economy, past displacement patterns, local, regional and international politics, social identity and intercommunal relationships in Libya.   The Libya analysis team also serves as a real-time information hub; assesses programmatic, partner, and operational risk; identifies and maps stakeholders; and works with internal partners to better enable data-driven decision making. Written analysis products range from daily updates during high-intensity periods, to regular monthly Whole-of-Libya summaries, to in-depth thematic reports and scenario planning.
