Latest News

Deadline for applications 30.05.2016

NRC Afghanistan established operations in 2003, and currently maintains four area offices in Balkh, Nangarhar, Herat, and Kandahar Provinces, as well as field offices in hard-to-reach provinces: Kunduz, Khost, Faryab, Sar-i-Pul and Badghis. NRC interventions are based on the humanitarian principles, which are promoted to increase the acceptance of humanitarian assistance amongst target populations, as well as, to facilitate and enable access. Afghanistan is a protracted and complex emergency in which conflict and recurrent natural disasters combine, set against a back drop of the continued return of Afghan Refugees from Pakistan and Iran; the humanitarian context is characterized by multiple localised emergencies, striking communities and populations with low resilience and/or high vulnerability. The objective of the ‘Information, Counselling and Legal Assistance’ (ICLA) is to promote and facilitate durable solutions for conflict and natural-disaster affected IDPs and refugee-returnees in Afghanistan, assisting vulnerable displacement affected populations to claim and exercise their Housing, Land and Property (HLP) and civil documentation rights and reach durable solutions. 

Therefore, NRC required an ICLA Specialist who would report to the Head of Program
