On 14 June 2011, OCHA Libya dissolved the Libya Shabiya/district administrative boundaries to create this layer. This was done so that there's topographic consistency between the Shabiyas/districts and the Libya international boundary. Some Libya boundaries from other sources were found to be inconsistent and hence not coincidental with the Shabiya boundaries and hence the need to create this new layer.
