The Core Humanitarian Standard (CHS) is now available in Bahasa Indonesia. We would like to thank the Indonesian Society for Disaster Management (MPBI) for translating the Standard and Oxfam GB for supporting its publication and launch.

The Bahasa Indonesia version of the Standard was launched at two events linked to disaster risk reduction month in Solo, Central Java, in October 2015. It was launched by the President of MPBI’s Catur D. Sudiro at a workshop on refugees in partnership with the School of Geography Education and Centre of Disaster Management Studies at the University Muhammadiyah Surakarta on 15 October. The 30 workshop attendees represented the government, universities, the Red Cross, and other humanitarian organisations including United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA)’s Humanitarian Affairs Analyst - Titi Moektijasih, United Nations Higher Commisioner for Refugees (UNHCR)’s Assistant Protection Officer - Nurul Rochayati, and National Authority for Disaster Management’s Director for Refugee Affairs - Taufik Kartiko.

A session on the implication of the CHS for humanitarian actors and civil society organisations also took place on 17 October in cooperation with Yakkum Emergency Unit. The secretary general of MPBI Faisal Djalal opened the event by introducing the CHS. Ni Masjitoh Tri Siswandewi from the Ministry of Social Affairs highlighted the relevance of the Standard to Indonesia, a topic which then guided group discussions among the 54 attendees.

The CHS is also available in English, French, Spanish, Korean and Turkish on our Standard page. We also encourage organisations to translate the CHS into other languages, to help disseminate the document more widely. Those wishing to do so should first email for more information and approval from the CHS communications team.
