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 assist within the sector of shelter, education, emergency food security and distribution, camp management and legal assistance.

The Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) started operations in Somaliland in early 2004. In 2006, operations opened in Puntland and Dadaab, Kenya. The Mogadishu office opened in early 2007. NRC has large Shelter, Education and Distribution programs in Somalia and n Kenya.

Two consecutive seasons of below average rainfall in Somalia has led to widespread livestock mortality, crop failure and soaring prices of locally produced cereals. This situation stands against a backdrop of high global prices for staples and oil, as well as disruptions to trade due to the on-going conflict. Altogether this has resulted in about 2.85 million people being unable to access sufficient food to meet their needs. The Food Security and Nutrition Analysis unit of Somalia (FSNAU) has analysed the market context and announced that cash programmes are a viable option in most places.

In response to the food security situation, NRC will strengthen and initiate a Food Security project targeting nutritionally vulnerable households in Mogadishu and Afgooye.
