Security Upgrade of Facilities in Libya

This project, which was co-funded with the United States Department of State’s Biological Engagement Programme, provided biosafety and biosecurity enhancements to two facilities in Libya. Based on a US security assessment, two establishments were selected for upgrade using UK funding. The project, which successfully completed in May 2020, improved local capabilities to deny terrorists access to materials of concern and to manage biological risks with potential international impact.
