Sphere Humanitarian Charter and Minimum Standards in Disaster Response 2011 edition
Sphere Humanitarian Charter and Minimum Standards in Disaster Response, a 2011 revised handbook of The Sphere Project, sets out minimum standards for four sectors: water, sanitation, and hygiene promotion; food security and nutrition; shelter, settlement and non-food items; and health action.
The cornerstone of the handbook is the Humanitarian Charter which describes the rights of people affected by disasters. The standards, each with key indicators and guidance notes, aim to articulate the implications of fulfilling these rights. The Code of Conduct for the International Red Cross/Crescent Movement and Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) in Disaster Relief is included as an annex.
