Project Design

The Sphere movement – which brought about the Sphere Standards – was started by a group of humanitarian professionals aiming to improve the quality of humanitarian work during disaster response. With this goal in mind, they framed a Humanitarian Charter and identified a set of humanitarian standards to be applied in humanitarian response.

The Sphere Handbook should be referred to across the project design and implementation of any emergency program. The Sphere Handbook can be downloaded into a large number of languages and can be found by clicking the link above.
