At the political level, the EU Delegation works closely with United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL), Member States and all other actors working towards the stabilisation and democratic transition of Libya. It hosts regular coordination meetings with EU member state embassies to coordinate policy and share information.
The EU is one of the biggest donors of development and humanitarian assistance to Libya, and the delegation manages an ongoing portfolio of programmes and projects amounting to around €360 million. The main funding sources are the EU Emergency Trust Fund for Africa (EUTF - North Africa Window)the European Neighbourhood Instrument (ENI) and the Instrument Contributing to Stability and Peace (IcSP).
The EU is also operating two Common Security and Defense Policy (CSDP) missions in support of Libya, EUNAVFOR Med Operation Sophia and the EU Border Assistance Mission in Libya (EUBAM). These missions assist Libya in securing its borders, through technical advice, training and capacity building and aim at disrupting the business model of human smugglers and help to enforce of the UN arms embargo. The CSDP missions are external to the EU Delegation, but all work closely together towards the achievement of their respective mandates.
Finally, the Delegation hosts the EU Liaison and Planning Cell (EULPC) whose main objective is to support UNSMIL in the operationalisation of military and police aspects of the Libya security track. The EULPC is also the main security analysis provider for the EU and Member States in Libya.
