In late September, CWS joined colleagues from the International Federation of the Red Cross and Save the Children in Vietnam to lead a two-day workshop about key humanitarian standards – SPHERE and CHS – plus needs assessment methodologies and tools. In all, 20 colleagues from organizations working on emergency response in Vietnam joined the workshop, and their feedback showed that they gained basic knowledge of (i) humanitarian principles, (ii) human rights as explained in the humanitarian charter, (iii) core humanitarian standards and, finally, of (iv) needs assessment tools / use.  A key outcome of the workshop is the contact network that formed for further sharing of information, knowledge, skills and experience more regularly
