As part of the Norwegian Refugee Council, NORCAP solves challenges in the humanitarian, development, and peacebuilding sectors in order to better protect lives and rights of people affected by crises and climate change. We build partnerships, promote more effective ways of working and provide skilled experts to develop capacity. Since 1991 NORCAP has provided expertise to approximately 10,000 missions across the globe.
We work with and through our partners to address challenges via three core activities:
- We develop partnerships with regional and global organisations and national stakeholders. We believe working together in a coordinated and sustainable manner is the best way to reduce needs, risks and vulnerability over time.
- We seek and promote more effective ways of working at the global level and in the field. Our aim is not only to reduce needs, but also to create choice and opportunity for vulnerable people.
- We deploy skilled experts to develop our partner’s capacity. Given their independence from agendas and interests of the organisations they are deployed to, our experts are well placed to identify and address challenges, improve collaboration, and encourage new and innovative approaches.
In NORCAP, we have a wide range of ongoing projects within various areas in the humanitarian, development, and peacebuilding sectors.
