Job Description


The three ongoing crises in Cameroon – the Northwest-Southwest (NW-SW) crisis, the Lake Chad Basin crisis, and the Central African Republic (CAR) crisis – are further complicated by the Covid-19 pandemic which led to an increase of more than 4.4 million people in need (2021 HNO). In 2020, NRC named Cameroon second world’s most neglected crisis. As of September 20, 2021, only 29 % of the HRP was funded (OCHA, Financial Tracking Service).

Established in 2017, NRC Cameroon now has operations in the Far North region (Maroua and Kousseri), the Northwest-Southwest regions (Buea and Bamenda), and in the East (Batouri).
