Reconstruction relief and rehabilitation


UPDATED 2018 This is a supplementary decision to the agreement with the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) for their humanitarian program 2017-2019. The decision is made in accordance with Sida’s contribution management rule, paragraph 3.11.3 and corresponds to the second year of a three year agreement. In accordance with Sida’s humanitarian allocation process 2018, Sida proposes to support NRC’s humanitarian programs in the following 21 countries; Afghanistan, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of Congo, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kenya, Lebanon, Libya, Mali, Nigeria, Palestine, Somalia, South Sudan, Syrian Arab Republic, Uganda, Ukraine and Yemen. Sida will contribute with an unearmarked allocation per country, which will give NRC the flexibility to meet the most acute humanitarian needs in ever-changing contexts. However, in the specific case of Palestine, Sida will earmark the contribution to the ICLA-component, as this sector is considered high priority and as contributory to the HRPs focus on protection. The support to Central African Republic and the Democratic Republic of Congo is suggested to span over a two-year period. This is in line with Sida’s ambition to increase our partner’s predictability, and allow for their long-term planning and alignment with a multi-year HRP. Sida assesses NRC’s country programs as relevant in relation to the Swedish strategy for humanitarian assistance 2017-2020, as well as the humanitarian needs identified in Sida’s humanitarian crises analyses for 2018. Sida is also suggesting a multi-year contribution to NRC’s Rapid Response Mechanism, to allow for a timely response to sudden onset situations or escalating crises. Furthermore, Sida suggests a two-year financial contribution to the NRC-led Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (IDMC), which strives to increase knowledge on the needs of internally displaced, and one-year contributions to the NRC/NORCAP managed project “Strengthening capacity for use of cash- and market based responses in humanitarian action”, to NRC's internal work on "Digital Transformation" and to NRC’s work on humanitarian policy, which includes work to strengthen the global humanitarian system and NGO participation in the system. Sida also proposes to channel funds through NRC for the support of three NGO platforms; the Jordan INGO Forum (JIF), the Lebanon Humanitarian INGO Forum (LHIF) and the International Association of Development Agencies (AIDA). In regard to AIDA, the Consulate General in Jerusalem has the intention to provide support for AIDA within the framework of the cooperation strategy for Palestine. Efficiency gains can be achieved by providing the support through the NRC-Sida humanitarian unit cooperation agreement, and it is thus suggested that Sida/HUM channels this limited development funding, with funding delegated from Palestine Strategy, decision number XXX XXXX NRC’s target group is mainly comprised of refugees and internally displaced persons but also when relevant, host communities and returnees. NRC is working within its six core competencies (sectors); shelter, livelihoods and food security, education, water and sanitation, camp management and legal advice. Sida and NRC have collaborated since 2005. NRC was granted Sida Strategic Partnership in 2013. NRC is an important partner for Sida as the organisation operates in some of the world's most difficult humanitarian crises. NRC was during 2017 Sidas/Hums largest humanitarian CSO partner, and is expected to remain so in 2018. Sida’s support to NRC comprises a three year agreement for humanitarian activities, for which funding is decided each year based on Sida’s allocation process and NRC’s yearly application. Additional funding is granted through supplementary decisions throughout the year. Apart from the flexible support offered through the Program Based Approach, NRC may reallocate up to 10 % of funds between RRM-projects
