Monitoring & Evaluation Manager - Lebanon
The Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) is a non-governmental, humanitarian organization with 60 years of experience in helping to create a safer and more dignified life for refugees and internally displaced people. NRC advocates for the rights of displaced populations and offers assistance within the shelter, education, emergency food security, legal assistance, and water,sanitation and hygiene sectors.
The Norwegian Refugee Council has approximately 5000 committed and competent employees involved in projects across four continents. In addition, NRC runs one of the world’s largest standby rosters -NORCAP, with 650 professionals, ready to be deployed on 72 hours notice when a crisis occurs
Rights Respected, People Protected
In 2015, NRC’s operations in Lebanon provided assistance to more than 300,000 beneficiaries
Although Lebanon is not a signatory to the 1951 Refugee Convention, it has the highest number of refugees per capita in the world. The estimated 1.5 million Syrian refugees and 270,000 Palestinian refugees amount to over a quarter of Lebanon's total population.
NRC opened our offices in Lebanon in 2006 and through our Lebanon programme, we support everyone affected by displacement – refugees as well as host communities. We help them fight for their rights and overcome the everyday hardships they face. We focus on providing legal assistance and shelter, and advocating for refugee rights inside the country, regionally, and internationally. NRC has offices located in Beirut, Tyre, Tal Abbas and Zahle. Because refugees in Lebanon live side-by-side with the Lebanese, we also work to serve the local communities hosting displaced people. In all NRC projects, our experts work together to maximise the impact of our activities.
