NORCAP solves challenges in the humanitarian, development, and peacebuilding sectors to better protect vulnerable people’s lives and rights. We build partnerships, promote more effective ways of working and provide skilled experts to develop capacity.

We work with and through our partners to address challenges via three core activities:

  • We develop partnerships with regional and global organisations and national stakeholders. We believe working together in a coordinated and sustainable manner is the best way to reduce needs, risks, and vulnerability over time.
  • We seek and promote more effective ways of working at the global level and in the field. Our aim is not only to reduce needs, but also to create choice and opportunity for vulnerable people.
  • We deploy skilled experts to develop our partner’s capacity. Given their independence from agendas and interests of the organisations they are deployed to, our experts are well placed to identify and address challenges, improve collaboration, and encourage new and innovative approaches.

ACAPS, a project hosted by NRC/NORCAP is dedicated to helping humanitarians make better decisions. We want to put evidence at the heart of decision-making. To achieve this, we collaborate with a variety of partners across the humanitarian sector and beyond. We strive to be an evolving platform providing:

  • Innovative approaches to collect more reliable and timely data and conduct rigorous analysis.
  • Capacity development of humanitarian actors to carry out better needs assessments and analysis.
