Project Management

ProCap aims to strengthen the collaborative response of protection agencies and non-protection mandated organisations. To do this, it deploys senior personnel with proven protection expertise at field, regional and global operations and trains mid-level protection staff from standby partners and humanitarian organisations. The Project objectives and activities are guided by the 2014-2016 ProCap Strategy.

Project Governance / Management

Background

Launched in 2005, ProCap aims to enhance the humanitarian system’s protection response through the deployment of Senior Protection Advisers and the delivery of inter-agency protection capacity trainings. The strategic direction of the project is reviewed regularly to ensure that it responds to changing needs and gaps within the international humanitarian response. An external evaluation in 2007, a Strategic Review in 2009, and an external evaluation in 2011 all confirmed the continued relevance of the project.

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.

A balancing act

“Internal displacement must be brought back on to the global agenda”, urges NRC’s Secretary General Jan Egeland ahead of the NRC Global Displacement Conference 2017. “Humanity has no borders, and no group should be neglected.”

“We need the full picture of global displacement to be acknowledged. Two-thirds of all people currently displaced by conflict around the world are internally displaced. To limit access to assistance and protection according to lines on a map would be a failure of humanity,” says Egeland.

Lack of attention and investment

In the first two weeks of April, an average of 1,000 unregistered refugees returned from Pakistan to Afghanistan daily: a sharp increase compared to the beginning of the year. “We are concerned that without proper registration documents Afghan refugees are unprotected,” said Kate O'Rourke, Country Director for the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) in Afghanistan.

PAKISTAN/Quetta: Alarmingly low enrolment rates show that only under half of Afghan refugee children attend primary school in the Pakistani province, Balochistan.

Mujeeb and Bibi Hajira, aged 10 and 9 years, are two of almost one thousand refugee children that enrolled in an Accelerated Education Programme (AEP) in the provincial capital Quetta, a programme designed by Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC). Mujeeb and Bibi Hajira’s parents came to Pakistan along with their grandparents in the early 1980s because of security conditions in Afghanistan.
