Sphere has recently updated its Interactive Handbook, making it quicker and easier to browse and access its content. New features allow users to browse the Handbook in multiple languages, access additional sets of standards, filter and share search results and embed the Handbook into other websites. This improved platform is an essential resource for humanitarian practitioners looking for guidance across all phases of preparedness and response. Users have the option of browsing the Interactive Handbook in English, Arabic, French and Spanish. The Handbook is currently being translated into ten more languages, expected to be added to the platform in the coming months. Japanese is due to be the first addition later in 2019. The online platform now also includes the Minimum Economic Recovery Standards (MERS) Handbook, also available in English, Arabic, French and Spanish. More sets of standards should be added in the coming months.
