With the Sphere Handbook going through a major revision now, a new version is on track to be launched in early 2018! Major changes will include the Core Humanitarian Standard (CHS) replacing the former Core Standard section, and much clearer guidance and coherence throughout the technical chapters, and stronger emphasis of cross-cutting themes. Consultation among all stakeholders has started and will continue until the end of May to inform a second draft, which then will go through another public consultation period in the fall, before the final version is drafted by the end of the year. Takeshi Komino, Japan Country Representative, is a “chapter lead” for the CHS chapter, and he especially invites CWS colleagues’ comments directly to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please visit the site below for more information and to provide your valuable inputs!
