NORCAP: Expert deployment
NORCAP is the Norwegian Refugee Council’s expert deployment capacity. We aim to improve international and local ability to prevent, prepare for, respond to and recover from crises. We do this by bringing actors together and by sending experts to the UN and to national, regional and international organisations and institutions.
Partners and donors
NORCAP works with partners on national, regional and international levels in order to contribute effectively to humanitarian operations. We provide expertise in various fields to support to a wide range of organisations and countries through the deployment of expert personnel.
