Population of Libya

Libya is the fourth largest country in Africa, and larger than the state of Alaska. The country is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea to the north, Tunisia and Algeria to the west, Niger and Chad to the south, and Sudan and Egypt to the east. To access the water beneath the Sahara, Libya built the Great Man-Made River, a network of underground pipelines that supply fresh water to cities. Upon its completion in 1991, the “river” became the largest source of permanently flowing water in Libya. We review the population of Libya in 2023, its location, area, map, and general information about it.


What is the population of Libya in 2023?

The population of Libya in 2023 is approximately 7,143,000 people. Most of Libya’s population lives in cities along the Mediterranean, where the climate is milder than the country’s hot desert interior. Both the capital, Tripoli, and Benghazi, the second largest city, are located near the coast.


Geographical location of Libya

Libya is located in North Africa and overlooks the Mediterranean Sea, between Egypt, Tunisia, Algeria, and the southern borders with Chad, Niger, and Sudan. Libya is almost entirely covered by the Libyan Desert, a flat plateau that forms part of the Sahara, the largest hot desert in the world. Libya is so dry that there are no permanent rivers flowing across its borders. Water may flow underground and sometimes seep above ground into dry streams called wadis.
