Do you want to support the response capacity of UNHCR and contribute to offering a durable solution to the refugees in some of the world’s most difficult situations?
Who are we?
The DRC Stand-by Roster is a unit within the International Department of the Danish Refugee Council. For almost 30 years the DRC Stand-by Roster (SBR) has assisted UN agencies around the world with deployment of experts to fill capacity gaps in humanitarian emergencies with short notice. The DRC SBR is considered a leading partner to several UN agencies including UNHCR, UNICEF and WFP. The unit is managing several rosters that enable the DRC SBR to deploy expert staff on short notice to UN humanitarian operations globally.
