Written question – Libya – E-009336/2016

It seems that the situation in Libya remains volatile and civilians, who are bearing the brunt of the protracted armed violence, face a difficult humanitarian situation. The top humanitarian priority needs remain primary healthcare and essential medicines, protection of the most vulnerable and access to essential goods and services. It is estimated that 2.4 million people have been affected since the beginning of the crisis in mid-2014, out of a total population of 6.3 million. At present, approximately 1.3 million people require humanitarian assistance. In total, the Commission has allocated EUR 16.76 million in humanitarian aid to vulnerable populations in Libya since the current crisis started in mid-2014.

What measures is the Commission taking to make sure that humanitarian aid and relief assistance regularly reaches the communities and the vulnerable families from the areas affected by the ongoing violence?
