Preparedness through prepositioning

We work to strengthen international emergency preparedness and emergency relief by supporting UN agencies and Norwegian NGOs in prepositioning and stock piling of relief items.

NOREPS provides funding to the UN and NGOs for ready-to-deploy stocks of relief goods and life-saving equipment.

We provide funding to the UN and national humanitarian actors. A key feature for the funding is prepositioning of relief items in areas such as water and sanitation, shelter and protection, nutrition and health, sustainable energy, telecommunications and logistics.

NOREPS is designed to provide relief agencies with support prior to emergency operations, to strengthen preparedness and ready-to-deploy stocks. NOREPS is intended to meet the need for immediate, internationally coordinated assistance with goods and equipment that are appropriate to the situational needs and are of suitable quality and competitively priced.
