Introduction to Disaster and Refugee Response: Sphere International Standards
26 July - 31 July
This program empowers participants to effectively contribute to global response efforts through knowledge and application of life-saving and dignity-upholding measures as outlined in the Sphere Handbook: Humanitarian Charter and Minimum Standards in Humanitarian Response. Interactive sessions contextualize universal principles, standards, key actions, and key indicators and cover four core life-saving areas: water supply, sanitation and hygiene promotion; food security and nutrition; shelter, settlement and non-food items; and health action. Program participants will gain resources to put principles into practice, engage with coordinated relief efforts, minister to affected populations, and maintain resilience.
