In this episode, recorded just after the startling assassination attempt of the Libyan prime minister, we discuss climate security risks in Libya and how they are shaped by the country’s complicated political history. We hear how a weak social contract and large administration leave little space for development spending and the private sector, hindering the country’s energy transition. Furthermore, we discuss Europe’s responsibility as a major consumer of Libyan oil, and how it is critical to work on all entry-points in parallel and emphasise co-benefits of climate action for the economy and legitimacy of government.

Matthew Brubacher, former Economic Advisor to the UN Support Mission in Libya.
