The Norwegian Refugee Council is an independent humanitarian organisation helping people forced to flee. We work in crises across 31 countries, where we help save lives and rebuild futures.

Turkey, Bangladesh and Uganda alone received over half of all new refugees last year. Never before has the world registered a larger number of people displaced by war and persecution.
Sadiya, a displaced businesswoman
In 2014, Boko Haram insurgents attacked and occupied Sadiya’s hometown in Nigeria. They killed many people and took others as hostages. Terrified, Sadiya waited until nightfall before fleeing with her husband and children. They never returned.

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.
