Norwegian Refugee Council | Page 2 | Land Portal

The Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) is an independent, humanitarian, non-profit, non-governmental organisation, which provides assistance, protection and durable solutions to some of the world’s 42 million refugees and internally displaced persons.

With humanitarian assistance programmes in 20 countries, NRC assists people to claim their rights, access available remedies, and recover from the effects of abuse and violations. NRC’s Information, Counselling and Legal Assistance (ICLA) supports beneficiaries in claiming and exercising their rights. ICLA provides information, counselling, legal assistance, collaborative dispute resolution, capacity- building and advocacy activities. An increasingly important area of NRC’s legal aid work supports displaced women as they seek to enforce their housing, land and property (HLP) rights.

A new report by the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) outlines eight reasons why it is important to address HLP issues from the outset of a humanitarian response, including:
Saving lives, preventing further displacement and human rights violations
Adapting humanitarian response to complex urban environments
Ensuring equal access to humanitarian assistance
Promoting access to justice in crises contexts and contributing towards durable solutions

En Colombia, las personas desplazadas o en riesgo de desplazamiento a causa del conflicto armado se enfrentan una gran barrera que les impide acceder nuevamente a sus tierras: La ausencia del título de propiedad.

Adicional a lo anterior, el proyecto Tierra y Género (2010-2014) del Consejo Noruego para Refugiados identificó que la mujer no forma parte del título de propiedad de los predios, lo que aumenta su vulnerabilidad y riesgo de desplazamiento en zonas de conflicto.

The crisis that engulfed the Central African Republic (CAR) in the end of 2012 resulted in the perpetration of gross human rights violations, including the widespread looting and destruction of homes. As people fled the violence they left behind land which others occupied illegally. More than a year after the height of the crisis, approximately 440,000 Central Africans continue to be internally displaced. Almost half a million are refugees in neighbouring countries.
