Libya experienced an unprecedented level of upheaval and violence following anti-government protests that began on 17 February, 2011. As a result of heavy fighting across the country, significant numbers of people were displaced within Libya and into neighbouring countries. The conflict rendered most areas west of Benghazi inaccessible by road, while air access was also limited by the establishment of a no-fly zone.

To overcome logistical obstacles, especially access constraints, and to enhance the operational efficiency of logistics activities undertaken by the humanitarian communities, on 12 April 2011 the Humanitarian Coordinator activated the Logistics Cluster, with WFP identified as Cluster lead.
