Thinking of a Career in Emergency Management?
- BY Nicole Pelette
NORCAP is the Norwegian Refugee Council’s global provider of expertise to the humanitarian, development and peace-building sectors. We build partnerships with international organisations and national actors to protect lives, rights and livelihoods. NORCAP provides expert personnel and collaborates with our partners to identify needs and to establish common goals and projects. We help strengthen partner capacity and improve coordination and collaboration. Since 1991, NORCAP has deployed experts to more than 9000 missions to crisis all around the world.
NORCAP contributes to solve key challenges within the humanitarian, development and peace-building sectors in order to make a change for people in need. Our ultimate goal is to protect the lives, rights and livelihoods of vulnerable people and communities. That means working to uphold their dignity, help build resilient communities and ensure peaceful transitions from conflict to democratic societies.
In an effort to strengthen partner capacity and system wide coherence along the humanitarian-development continuum, NORCAP’s Humanitarian Response and Resilience Unit (HRRU) drives strategic planning with UN and institutional partners. Manages strategic partnerships, and leads project development and grants management to strengthen capacity of the UN system at global and field levels, regional organizations, national institutions and civil society. The HRRU thus manages a dynamic portfolio of programmes, projects, and new initiatives and is key in translating strategic priorities to operations.Duties and responsibilities
