Attend a course on the Humanitarian Charter and Minimum Standards in Humanitarian Action (3rd to 6th March)

The Sphere Handbook is a set of principles and minimum standards for humanitarian response, based on the Humanitarian Charter. The Canadian Council for International Co-operation offers training on its implementation and use to humanitarian action professionals and relevant members of the academic community.

This course aims to equip participants with the necessary knowledge to train their peers and promote the use of the Sphere Handbook at their level.

Developed by NGOs and the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, the Sphere Handbook is a universal practical guide to humanitarian action. It aims to improve the quality of humanitarian assistance in disasters and conflicts and to promote accountability towards affected populations. The manual addresses four themes: WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene), food security and nutrition, shelter and settlement, and health.
