Project: Improvement of Development Process and Local Governance in the Municipality of Tripoli

III. Introduction

The Municipality of Tripoli received on the 15th of January 2016 a grant from the European Union (EU) to realize the project” Improvement of Development Process and Local Governance in the Municipality of Tripoli” over a period extending to 48 months that included 2 extension periods of 6 months each. The overall objective of the project is to improve the institutional and operational contribution to governance and development process in the Municipality of Tripoli. The Specific objectives of the project are to improve access in Bab El Tabbane, Jabal Mohsen and El Ghouraba to basic and adequate socialservices on a sustainable basis. All three communities will benefit from a positive impact on different levels especially on Health, Education, Job Creation and awareness levels. Five Expected results derive from the project.

IV. The project

The project derives from four basic facts advanced by the Municipality of Tripoli:

  1. The local authority and civil society are in need for capacity building.
  2. Health is a fundamental human right and should be available to all people regardless of gender, social class, ethnicity and age.
  3. Job opportunities are very limited due to the deficiency of educational skills.
  4. Recreational activities allowing the cohesion of the dissimilar zones allow a better synergy.

Unemployment is the most dangerous problem in light of family extension and large number of youth not qualified vocationally and not educated which pushed them to potential risks such as extremism, terrorism, etc. The high rate of unemployment in the project areas reaches 65% among the labour forces, exceeding 30% for men and 91.5% for women. The above third issue originates from the fact that there are no vocational schools in Bab El Tabbaneh except one in Jabal Mohsen with an afternoon shift, and that local NGOs play a role in organizing vocational training especially in sewing, ceramics and plastic, hairdressing, and make-up, while other associations are providing educational support to enroll students and the demands are increasing. The project will target the disabled people through a special vocational training on themes such as Jewelry, Handcrafts, Furniture, etc.

 

The stakeholders, mainly Vocational and Technical General Directorate of Ministry of Education and Higher Education, the Ministry of Social Affairs (MOSA) as well as social-oriented CSOs working in the targeted areas, will be involved in the planning phase of the project and they will play an important role to ensure a proper sustainability of the whole provided services.
