A new training module on the Core Humanitarian Standard (CHS) and its usage in conjunction with the Sphere Handbook is now available in ArabicEnglishFrench and Spanish.

The new training module can be used in a two-hour interactive training session and will help train humanitarian practitioners on the content and format of the CHS and its Guidance Notes & Indicators. Its focus is on how the CHS can be used in association with Sphere sectoral minimum standards and Protection Principles.

The CHS has replaced the Core Standards chapter of the Sphere Handbook. Full integration of the CHS into the printed versions of the Sphere Handbook will take place during the next Handbook revision process. Interim guidance on how to link the CHS with the Handbook sectoral standards is also under development.
