Libya, Towards a War of Attrition

Four months after Khalifa Haftar and his Libyan National Army (LNA) began the offensive on Tripoli to seize control of the capital from the UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA), Western Libya is caught in a war of attrition. The conflict has become bogged down in a stalemate on the capital's outskirts. The involvment of external forces has further fueled the conflict. Whilst the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Egypt, have supported the LNA's military activities, Turkey, and Qatar have supported the GNA and helped the UN-backed government resist Haftar's territorial offensives. With France supportive of the LNA and Italy siding with the GNA, there has been no common EU position. UN-backed plans for elections to install a new government overseeing all of Libya have so far failed, and it remains unclear whether any of the country's well-armed factions would respect any results. According to the WHO the new conflict has left 1,093 people dead and 120,000 displaced and provoked sharp rifts within and among communities in western Libya, and deepened the divide between the eastern and western parts of the country. What are the prospects for Libya's conflict? What is the potential impact of a Libyan war of attrition on Europe? What is the role of the EU and its member states in potentially ending the conflict?

KAS, in collaboration with ACVN, organizes a consultation workshop today, at Sheraton Hotel, on “Best practice of urban governance in Vietnam”. At the event, findings from a study research focusing on: i) Administrative Reforms; ii) Urban Environment Management and iii) Building city branding which was conducted in 6 selected cities including Uong Bi, Ha Noi, Lao Cai, Vinh, Hoi An and Nha Trang are presented. All participants agree that these above themes are most important and burning issues in urban management nowadays. Many practical issues, model and effective ways are shared and exchanged. The workshop is successful in bringing a platform for connection among cities as well as between city and government ministries and agencies towards a long-term, sustainable and effective collaboration in the future. People of the cities play an important role in the success of model as without their support and participation, models could not be able to achieve its expected outcomes. Plastic waste related issues also should be incorporated into the report. The final report should synthesize into lesson learnt so as to easy to replicate nationwide. ACVN will play a very important role in connecting with other cities in countries and abroad as well to exchange lesson learnt in urban management. Leaders from ACVN highly appreciate the valuable support from KAS and look forward to continued collaboration in the time to come. In response, Mr. Peter Girke – KAS Representative also express heartfelt thanks and appreciation to ACVN and emphasize that the findings from this study research shall be the kick-off and basis for designing next year’s cooperation plan between ACVN and KAS.
