The Core Humanitarian Standard (CHS) and the Guidance Notes and Indicators are now available in Chinese. The CHS management team would like to thank Oxfam Hong Kong, World Vision China, Plan International China and Zhuoming Information Aid for their hard work translating and designing the Standard. The CHS in Chinese will be an invaluable resource for humanitarian and development organisations working across Asia and worldwide.
