The UN Support Mission in Libya and the Presidential Council on Tuesday launched a $202 million humanitarian response plan for more than half a million people in the country.

According to the Libyan prime minister's information office, the funds will be used to cover urgent humanitarian needs, including healthcare, water and education.

"The effort in this humanitarian action is part of a collective work that includes politics, security and development. Its success depends on progress in various tracks," said Libyan Prime Minister Fayez Al-Sarraj.

Ghassan Salamé, the UN mission head, praised the Libyan government's economic reforms, saying the reform program should include both public and private sectors for economic recovery.
