NRC Annual Report from the Board 2019

Published 05. Jun 2020
The Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) is an independent humanitarian organisation working to protect the rights of displaced and vulnerable people during crises. We provide assistance to meet immediate humanitarian needs, prevent further displacement and contribute to durable solutions.

NRC is Norway’s largest international humanitarian organisation and widely recognised as a leading field-based displacement agency within the international humanitarian community. NRC is a rights-based organisation and is committed to the humanitarian principles of humanity, neutrality, independence and impartiality.

In 2019, we worked in both new and protracted crises across 33 countries. Our main activity is the delivery of humanitarian aid through programme activities in the field. We specialise in six areas of expertise: shelter and settlements; livelihoods and food security; information, counselling and legal assistance; education; camp management; and water, sanitation and hygiene promotion.
