Sphere guidelines second review process is now open

Hi there,

Draft 2 of the Sphere Handbook 2018 is now avalibe to comment, you can get the WASH chapter here

The first phase of the revision process was the most inclusive in Sphere’s history. Sphere and its partners analyzed 2,500 comments as well as input received from 1,200 participants in consultation events across 40 countries.

The deadline for this next phase of revisions is the 6th of November.

Highlights of Draft 2 include:
  • A revised What is Sphere introduction to using the standards in practice;
  • A new Delivering Through Markets annex covering Supply Chain Management and Cash-Based Assistance;
  • Strengthened inter-chapter linkages and more robust integration of cross-cutting themes;
  • A redesigned Shelter and Settlement chapter;
  • New WASH standards on linkages to health for disease outbreaks and nutrition interventions;
  • A full review of the Protection Principles;
  • Newly drafted chapter introductions and appendices.

So share your knowledge and inputs with the wider community!
