NRC is Norway’s largest international humanitarian organisation and is 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. NRC is registered as a foundation under Norwegian law.
In 2022, NRC worked in both new and protracted crises across 40 countries. Its main activity is the delivery of humanitarian aid through programme activities in the field. NRC specialises in six areas of expertise, also known as core competencies within NRC: shelter and settlements; livelihoods and food security; information, counselling and legal assistance (ICLA); education; protection from violence, and water, sanitation and hygiene promotion (WASH).
NRC advocates towards decision-makers in order to obtain full respect for the rights of displaced and vulnerable people. It advocates at local, national, regional and global levels, basing its messages and strategies on first-hand experience and specialised expertise.
