NRC’s Central and West Africa Regional Office (CWARO) located in Dakar, Senegal is quite a recent regional office. It was moved from Oslo, Norway to Dakar, Senegal in March 2018 and started being operational in the summer of 2018.
The CWA region is composed of Country Offices in Mali, the Central African Republic (CAR), the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), North-east Nigeria, Cameroon and a new country office in Niger and Burkina Faso. All countries are experiencing a deterioration of the security situation, increasing humanitarian needs and displacements numbers due to conflict. Displacement across the region is fluid and complex. Across the region new displacements occur alongside secondary displacements of people who are trying to return home, but often find themselves unable to reach their place of origin. An increasing number of people across the region live in protracted displacement, and are dependent on humanitarian assistance for survival.
The Central and West Africa Regional Office is overseeing the country programmes in the region, and provides strategic guidance across core programmes, advocacy and support functions.
