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.
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:
- The Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (Norad)
- Various UN agencies, including the International Organization for Migration (IOM), Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the UN Population Fund (UNFPA), the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) and the World Food Programme (WFP)
- The European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (ECHO)
- The EU’s Directorate-General for International Partnerships – (DG INTPA, formerly DG DEVCO)
- The US Agency for International Development’s Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (BHA)
- The US Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration (PRM)
- European Economic Area (EEA) Grants
- The Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC)
- The German Federal Foreign Office (FFO)
- The Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida)
- The UK Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO)
NRC/NORCAP believes in transparency and holds ourselves accountable to our donors, partners, staff and the displaced people we serve. To maintain the integrity of our work, we adhere to these principles:
Non-discrimination and respect for human dignity:
We are dedicated to providing support for the most vulnerable – regardless of nationality, ethnicity, gender, religion, political views or disabilities.
We ensure that the details on how we work, and where are funds go, are accessible and visible. Our information aligns with the standards of the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI). Read more about our commitment to accountability.
Corruption, theft and mismanagement are common in many of the countries where we operate. NRC has robust anti-corruption and risk management systems. We hold our partners to the same high standards.
More than 90 per cent of NRC's costs are used in the crisis-affected countries where we operate. Our current administrative costs average between 9 and 10 per cent of our global budget. Read more about our finances.
Monitoring and evaluation:
We routinely reflect on our experiences and projects in the field, critically assessing our projects at the field and management levels.
At NRC, we take pride in the principles of our humanitarian action. Read our Ethical Guidelines on corporate partnerships.
