Vulnerability assessment of adolescents and young people is essential for UNICEF to be able to better define its programmes to improve the targeting of the young people based on their vulnerabilities and better contribute to making a change in the lives of the adolescents and youth.
UNICEF with the support of an international consultant was contracted to develop the framework, methodology, tools and protocols to be used in assessing adolescents and young people’s vulnerabilities in the four targeted municipalities in Libya.
Subsequently with the support of the third-party data collectors, and within his contract period, the consultant has developed the first draft of the report. As a result of the scale up of the armed conflict in Libya as of April 2019 and the subsequent conflict intensification in December 2019, the data collection took longer than expected and delayed the finalization of the report (including having the report peer reviewed, finalized and edited for publication).
As a result of these delays UNICEF seeks to engage the additional capacities of an international consultant to finalize the report, after it has been presented to counterparts from the Libyan government and civil society organization, as well as taking into consideration feedback from peer reviewers.
