Partners and donors

We achieve the greatest impact through partnerships. That’s why NORCAP collaborates with a wide range of humanitarian, development and peacekeeping partners across the globe, from multinational agencies to national authorities and local organisations. We combine our knowledge, experience and resources to protect and empower people at risk.

Partners

Part of our mission is to help the international community prevent and respond to humanitarian needs. We support international organisations and the UN particularly by sending personnel when additional or specialised expertise is needed. Our experts help in all stages of a crisis, from prevention and early warning to reconstruction and sustainable development. The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) are the organisations that received the most NORCAP support in 2018. We also work with regional partners including the African Union (AU) and the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) and national organisations and stakeholders to address challenges that require cooperation between countries to achieve sustainable solutions and build the capacity of local organisations and institutions. We have also joined forces with competency partners ranging from Statistics Norway to the United Kingdom Meteorological Office, who specialise in fields that increase our ability to provide expertise that is needed in the field.

Donors

We have worked closely with Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (NMFA) to improve aid since 1991. NFMA has provided financial support via framework partnership agreements since 2009 and the current strategic partnership agreement includes additional funds for emergency situations. In 2017, the NMFA and NORCAP established a second framework agreement with the NMFA on supporting international organisations in promoting democracy, human rights and peace (the NORDEM programme).   

We also receive funding from:
