Needs assessment for post-conflict reentry
A multinational company requested assistance in generating information on local community needs in Libya, as part of the process of developing a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy, used to map and plan future reentry.
By conducting interviews across 21 cities in Libya, and building on previously collected data on needs in Libya, We provided a comprehensive dataset and assessment of community needs, proposed entry mitigation outline.
The research has contributed to developing an understanding of the needs in communities in Libya, in turn constituting the foundation of a comprehensive CSR strategy to meet these needs.
Voluntas is expanding geographically. Earlier this year, we established a partnership with Sudan Polling and Statistics Center (SPSC). Dana Fuentes, a senior associate with Voluntas who until recently was based in Tunis, relocated to Sudan last month to support our expanding presence in the country. Dana will be supported by Nada Elamin. We will be opening an office in Khartoum in the coming months.
