NRC in 2016: our year in review

We assisted millions in 2016. It wasn’t easy.

The numbers were bleak. Nearly 66 million people were on the move, fleeing conflict and disaster. But we persevered.

In 2016, displacement figures topped the charts yet again. As the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) scaled up, our 2016 annual report details, we supported more than six million people throughout the year – improving 2015 achievements by nearly 27 per cent.

However, while post-conflict economic programming is often aimed at resuscitating markets and developing the private sector, there is limited evidence to support investments in these areas.

There, despite severe financial constraints, the million displaced people are met with warmth and generosity.
