Humanitarian Charter and Minimum Standards in Humanitarian Response.
The 2018 Sphere Handbook builds on the latest developments and learning in the humanitarian sector. Among the improvements of the new edition, readers will find a stronger focus on the role of local authorities and communities as actors of their own recovery. Guidance on context analysis to apply the standards has also been strengthened. New standards have also been developed, informed by recent practice and learning, such as WASH and healthcare settings in disease outbreaks, security of tenure in shelter and settlement, and palliative care in health. Different ways to deliver or enable assistance, including cash-based assistance, are also integrated into the Handbook.
Source: 1,981 listener groups, engaging 9,281 individuals, conducted by IOM,
Bangladesh Betar and ACF from August to November 2018. This feedback was
collected from camps 1, 2, 10, 11, 15, 16, 19, 22, 23, 24 and 25. Listener groups included
an even spread of men, women, adults and children and around 10% of participants

people with disabilities). In addition, focus group discussions were conducted in camp
24 to explore these issues in more depth.

Violence against children takes many sinister forms. In homes,
schools, communities and online around the world, it manifests
itself in debilitating physical and emotional abuse. In humanitarian
emergencies – especially those driven by relentless armed
conflicts – violence can result in death, serious injury and lasting
trauma. An insidious sort of violence also affects children when
humanitarian emergencies deprive them of health, nutrition,
water and sanitation, education and other basic needs.
Humanitarian Action for Children 2019 underscores the urgency
of protecting children in crisis from all such threats to their lives,
well-being and dignity.
