Summary

This report presents the findings of data collected during the months of April to November 2021 and covering 53 municipalities (baladiya) of Libya with significant IDP and migrant populations. This assessment was carried out through 445 Key Informant Interviews (KIIs) conducted at municipality (baladiya) and community (muhalla) levels. 

This report aims to shed light on the impact of the pandemic on vulnerable mobile populations, including on livelihoods, access to healthcare and market prices as well as access to COVID-19 vaccines and willingness to get vaccinated. As such, these findings aim to provide a better understanding of the situation and needs of migrants, IDPs, and host communities in Libya and how they have evolved over the past eight months.
