The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) on Friday said it rehabilitated 30 schools in the Libyan capital, Tripoli.

The rehabilitation of the schools is part of the UNDP’s Stabilisation Facility for Libya (SFL), which is supported by 13 international donors as well as the Libyan government, the UNDP said in a statement.

The SFL is currently undertaking 153 development projects in and around Tripoli, the statement said, in order to help local authorities provide basic services for people.

“In addition to the work completed on the 30 schools, the SFL is equipping 65 health centres and 42 more educational facilities.

“ Other projects on the list include improvement of solid waste management, the transportation sector, and water and sanitation services,’’ the statement said.

Due to years of armed conflict and political instability, Libyan authorities have been struggling to provide basic services to the people, mainly healthcare and education. (Xinhua/NAN)
