CONTEXTE DE TRAVAIL :
Outraged by the injustice faced by people with disabilities and vulnerable populations, we aspire to a world of solidarity and inclusion, enriched by our differences, where everyone can live in dignity.
Handicap International is changing his name and becomes « Humanity & Inclusion ». HI, Humanity & Inclusion is an independent and impartial aid and development organisation with no religious or political affiliations operating in situations of poverty and exclusion, conflict and disaster. We work alongside people with disabilities and vulnerable people to help meet their essential needs, improve their living conditions and promote respect for their dignity and fundamental rights.
HI has offices in 63 countries; for further information about the association: www.hi.org.
Handicap International (HI) has been operational continuously in Libya since 2011, and up until the end of 2014 delivered a large-scale Humanitarian Mine Action (HMA) programme in Tripoli, Misrata and Sirte. During that period, HI teams protected countless civilians from the risk of death and injury due to explosive hazards through the clearance of over 30km2 of land, including schools, agricultural land, beaches and residential areas; removing and destroying over 112,000 mines and ERW in the process. Risk Education teams reached more than 110,000 at-risk civilians and trained 1,000 people from across Libya to deliver mine/ERW/ SALW Risk Education themselves.
Due to the relocation of international staff in 2014 to Tunisia, HI’s clearance activities were suspended and in keeping with its Mine Action strategy in Libya, a Victim Assistance intervention was developed; implemented today through a team of 60 national staff in Tripoli, Misrata and Benghazi. Eleven outreach teams provide specialized services to vulnerable internally displaced and non-displaced with disabilities and injuries, including the provision of physical rehabilitation, psychosocial support, provision and fitting of assistive devices, and referrals to other external services when needed.
Following on from an assessment into mine action needs and opportunities at the end of 2017, from mid-2018, with the permanent redeployment of international staff to Libya, HI re-launched Non-Technical Survey (NTS), Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) and Risk Education operations based out of Misrata, initially working in Tawergha and Misrata city. In 2019 HI plans to continue working in the Misrata region with the full scope of humanitarian mine action as well as expand operations to eastern Libya, conditions permitting.
HI’s ongoing and planned activities in the mine action sector include:
– Land release and Risk Education in support of the return process for displaced populations.
– Continued assistance to and referral of victims of explosive hazards.

– Tunis coordination, Tripoli local coordination and operations, Misrata operations, Benghazi operations.
