Following the launch of the CHS Guidance Notes and Indicators in English and French, this document is now available in Arabic and Spanish.

The CHS Guidance Notes and Indicators supplement the Core Humanitarian Standard on Quality and Accountability (CHS). Aimed at all humanitarian actors and organisations involved in planning, managing or implementing a humanitarian response, this document provides 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 management team would like to gratefully acknowledge the financial support the Disasters Emergency Committee made available for the production of the Guidance Notes and Indicators.
