Who we are

For over 30 years, NORCAP has been working to solve challenges in the humanitarian, development, and peacebuilding sectors in order to better protect and meet the needs of people at risk.

Today, NORCAP delivers across the full range: from stand-by crisis response, to strategic assistance to improve how the aid system delivers. We work with local, national and international partners to develop knowledge and solutions, and promote more effective ways of working at the global level and in the field. Our independence enables us to bring together key stakeholders across sectors and mandates.

CashCap is one of NORCAP’s flagship programmes, established in 2015 to drive forward the cash agenda and support humanitarian and development partners’ efforts to increase the scale of cash assistance and realise its transformative potential for people in need. Since then, CashCap has been widely recognised as being instrumental to the significant global growth of cash and voucher assistance (CVA). In response to changing needs and developments, our services now include technical assistance, on-the-job capacity building and supporting more collaborative ways of delivering cash at scale.
