CHS Guidance Notes and Indicators launch in Korean
The CHS Guidance Notes and Indicators are now available in Korean. The CHS management team would like to thank the Korea NGO Council For Overseas Development Cooperation for coordinating the translation and design of the document. The document will be distributed to around 130 Korean NGOs and government agencies and will be an invaluable resource for Korean-speaking humanitarian and development actors working worldwide. The Guidance Notes and Indicators complements the Core Humanitarian Standard itself which is already avaiable in Korean here.
Aimed at all humanitarian actors and organisations involved in planning, managing or implementing a humanitarian response, the CHS Guidance Notes and Indicators provide clarification on the Key Actions and Organisational Responsibilities laid out in the CHS and examines some of the practical challenges that may arise when applying the CHS. It explains why each of the Nine Commitments of the CHS is important and provides indicators and guiding questions to promote measurement of progress towards meeting the standard and drive continuous learning and improvement.
The CHS Guidances Notes and Indicators are also available in our key languages Arabic, English, French and Spanish here. The CHS is available in 17 languages on our Standard page: Arabic, Bangla, Bahasa Indonesia, English, French, Haitian Creole, Japanese, Khmer, Korean, Nepali, Portuguese, Spanish, Swahili, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian and Urdu. We also encourage interested individuals and organisations to translate the CHS and CHS Guidance Notes and Indicators into other languages. This helps disseminate the document more widely and supports the efforts of humanitarian and development actors to improvement the quality and effectiveness of their responses. Those wishing to do so should first email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and approval from the CHS communications team.
