Humanitarian Charter and Minimum Standards - Chapter 4: Minimum Standards in Shelter, Settlement and Non-Food Items
PDF File Size: 326 KB | Download   
The Sphere handbook is a relevant and ‘living’ document for emergency response that has improved the accountability of humanitarian agencies in recent years. In order to maintain the relevance and usefulness in disaster response, Sphere needs to keep abreast of changing practices in widely varied contexts in humanitarian work, as well as latest technical innovations. On these grounds and acknowledging the significant changes that have taken place since the 2004 edition, the Sphere Board has decided to revise the Sphere Project Handbook –Humanitarian Charter and Minimum Standards in Disaster Response. The new edition is slated to be published towards the end of 2010. Following the successful precedent set by earlier revisions, this process will also be broadly consultative, and based on establishing a consensus for the changes that will be made. With a view to broad base the revision process, a consultation workshop on the “Shelter,Settlement and Non-Food Items” chapter was organized in Kathmandu on 21st July 2009. Red R India facilitated the workshop with the institutional support from IFRC, Kathmandu. 24 participants representing Nepal Shelter cluster members and other agencies participated in the workshop. The workshop methodology focused on participatory and consultative approach for eliciting comments and feedback on the existing handbook. Participants worked in 2 groups on the 2 sub-chapters “Shelter and settlement” and “Non Food Items” and came up with key comments and feedback on standards, key indicators and guidance notes etc. Apart from the inputs on standards pertaining to Shelter chapter, there were also some general suggestions on handbook structure, layout of appendices, inputs to appendices and also comments on common standards.
