The U.S. Strategy to Prevent Conflict and Promote Stability 10-Year Strategic Plan for Libya

In April 2022, President Biden announced the United States would prioritize engagement and partnership with Libya under the U.S. Strategy to Prevent Conflict and Promote Stability (#PromoteStability)The strategy is a long-term initiative to realize the goals of the landmark Global Fragility Act, an innovative effort to foster a more peaceful and stable world.  It is bolstered by additional U.S. investment in Libya’s stabilization and represents a significant U.S. commitment to support Libya’s resilience and progress toward a more peaceful future.   

To support Libya in breaking the cycle of instability, the United States, in close consultation with Libyan partners and the international community, has developed a 10-year strategic plan.  The strategy orients our concerted efforts toward a shared goal:  

Libya is governed by a democratically elected, unified, representative, and internationally recognized authority that is able to ensure human rights, deliver public services, promote inclusive and sustainable economic growth, secure its border, and partner with the United States and international community on shared priorities.”    

Through this plan, the United States will apply a scalable and sequenced approach across four overarching objectives to support the long-term peace and stability the Libyan people deserve:

The plan to #PromoteStability in Libya builds upon and strengthens constructive partnerships to achieve these objectives and support the Libyan people in their broader aspirations for stability, accountability, and responsive governance.  Initial areas of focus include community-level programs that can be scaled up to support national elections, Libyan-led reconciliation, and better integration of historically marginalized areas that are crucial to stability for Libya and the broader region.
