Project Case Study
Developing Libya’s Leaders: Tamayoz
Building leadership capacity and relationships between future leaders in key sectors in Libya
Libya has suffered from conflict, political fragmentation, and instability since the 2011 revolution. While Libyans and the international community continue to support the Government of National Unity, there is little sign of an imminent end to this instability.
To support future leaders within civil society, and the public and private sectors, the African Development Bank (AfDB) is funding a training program to build leadership capacity, and relationships between future leaders in key sectors.
We are delivering an innovative e-learning and residential training package designed to equip Libya’s future leaders with the skills needed to tackle the myriad of challenges facing the country. Selection for the programme is delivered on a competitive basis.
Complementing the foundational components of the e-learning and the participant driven leadership needs of future leaders, the residential training will build relationships between participants from the key sectors, networking participants with experts attuned to the issues Libya is experiencing, and introducing leadership techniques to positively affect this trajectory. The residential training will be followed by further, sector specific e-learning courses and events.
The project will be implemented in partnership with International Crisis Group, Al Akhawayn University (Morocco), and Ali Chelbi Consulting (Tunisia). After the course has been completed, course participants will retain their connections through an alumni network, and the Tamayoz project will work with a Libyan partner organisation to ensure that this course will remain available to future Libyan Leaders.
