Contexto It is widely recognized that humanitarian actors need to be more accountable for what they do, humanitarian assistance needs to be principled and standardized to ensure the most timely and effective assistance in each humanitarian response. In humanitarian action, globally, there is an acknowledgement that not doing so often results in programmes that fail to adequately address priority needs.
Objetivos Sphere’s goal, through its standards, is to allow all people affected by disaster or conflict to re-establish their lives and recover their livelihoods in ways that respect and promote their dignity.
Grupos destinarios All humanitarian practitioners and stakeholders
