Sphere Handbook Revisions Continue

CWS Japan | August 17, 2017

The Sphere handbook is vital to ensuring quality and accountability to those affected by disasters, and it is one of the most widely used tools in the humanitarian sector. Now in the middle of a year-long revision process with CWS Japan’s Country Representative, Takeshi Komino serving as chapter lead for the Core Humanitarian Standards section, the strategic review will build on evidence, practice and experience gathered since 2011 to publish a revised handbook for launching in 2018. Already Draft 1 has been circulated globally and, as a result, thousands of comments have been received. Draft 2 is now being edited and once all chapters are further revised, the CWS Asia team encourages CWS colleagues worldwide to get involved, http://www.sphereproject.org/news/sphere-handbook-revision-ready-for-input/
