    Recently, the Japan Quality and Accountability Network (JQAN), which is chaired by CWS Japan, launched the Japanese translation of the Sphere 2018 standards handbook. The event included an in-person gathering with more than 35 virtual participants from non-profit organizations and United Nations agencies plus government staff and university professors along with Sphere staff in Geneva.

    Increasing, local government entities in Japan are referencing and using Sphere standards in emergency response and preparedness work. These key stakeholders appreciated the contextualization of Sphere by JQAN trainers and CWS staff. The handbook can be downloaded here
