EXPRESSION OF INTEREST (EOI) Engineering Services for LGCS in Libya

DAI is issuing this Expression of Interest (EOI) for Libya Local Governance and Civil Society (LGCS).

The Libya Local Governance and Civil Society (LGCS) Program, locally known as the Taqarib Project, is a 4-year activity that aims to strengthen the foundations for a more unified Libyan state. To do this, Taqarib will empower local governments, reinforce community bonds, promote citizen engagement in public dialogue, and prioritize public resources allocations. The program will also link enhancement to service delivery at the municipal level with rational efforts to improve the execution of decentralization policy and to further evidence- based reforms. LGCS will work with approximately 30 municipalities across Libya.
