This evaluation provides a summary of the key activities of NRC’s Women’s rights through Information, Sensitisation and Education (WISE) Gender Based Violence (GBV) programme in Liberia in the period 2009-2014.
As a final evaluation, it seeks to understand the overall effectiveness of the programme and its level of sustainability once NRC leaves Liberia at the end of 2014. Key recommendations are also made on potential ways forward for NRC taking on GBV as a core competency globally.

NRC and Solvatten Foundation have partnered in Kenya’s Turkana County, supporting an innovative project that enables the local communities in Turkana West access safe water and improve their livelihood situation.
More households will be moving into the New Year with smiles on their faces as they become beneficiaries of the solar safe water equipment produced by Solvatten Foundation and distributed by NRC.
Last week the residents of the Gaza Strip were hit by a cold winter storm. The strong winds, low temperatures and heavy rains caused damage and floods in different parts of the Gaza Strip. Gas heaters make a big difference for displaced families.
More than one million Ukrainians have been driven from their homes since the conflict started in March 2014. “I do not think people are aware of how desperate the situation is for tens of thousands of displaced. This runs the risk of becoming a humanitarian catastrophe”, Jan Egeland Secretary General of the Norwegian Refugee Council said.
The humanitarian needs in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) are immense. Close to two million people are internally displaced and an estimated 450,000 Congolese have sought refuge in neighbouring countries. With a long history of conflict and weak governance, the majority of DRC's population is severely impoverished and deprived of basic services and infrastructure such as roads, drinkable water, electricity, schools, education and health centres.
- The Program Manager role is to support the NRC-DRC Urban Pilot and Recovery programs in North and South Kivu. This position is expected to manage and develop multi sectorial programmes across two different geographical locations from humanitarian first phase to recovery stage: 1) The urban pilot programme in two sub districts in Goma city focusing on meeting immediate needs, preparedness, governance and advocacy 2) The RRR programme in North and South Kivu focusing on building resilience.
NRC is running an Information, Counselling and Legal Assistance (ICLA) programme for internally displaced persons (IDPs) and other persons affected by displacement in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. The programme focuses on Housing, Land and Property (HLP) rights, Legal Civil Documentation (LCD), and protection of those affected by displacement. The long-term objective of the programme is to contribute to the achievement of durable solutions and improved protection and living conditions for NRC’s target group.
