The Core Humanitarian Standard (CHS) is now available in Mongolian and Lao, and the Guidance Notes and Indicators in Mongolian. The CHS management team would like to thank World Vision International for coordinating the translation. The CHS in Mongolian and Lao will be an invaluable resource for humanitarian and development organisations working in Asia.

The Mongolian translation was overseen by Vanchindorj Baasaikhuu from World Vision Mongolia. The reviewing committee included NEMA, IFRC, the Mongolian Red Cross, UNRCO, UNICEF, FAO, Save the Children, Mercy Corps and ADRA. As part of the launch of the translation, an orientation training on the CHS was conducted to 72 local staffs of NEMA (National Emergency Management Agency) and was also introduced to the members of the Humanitarian Country Team (HTC).

The CHS is now available in 26 languages on our Standard page: Amharic, Arabic, Bangla, Bahasa Indonesia, Cebuano, Chinese, English, Filipino (Tagalog), French, Japanese, Haitian Creole, Khmer, Korean, Lao, Mongolian, Myanmar, Nepali, Oromifa, Portuguese, Spanish, Swahili, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian, Urdu and Vietnamese. We also encourage interested individuals and organisations to translate the CHS into other languages. This helps disseminate the document more widely and supports the efforts of humanitarian and development actors to improve the quality and effectiveness of their responses. Those wishing to do so should first email for more information and approval from the CHS communications team
