A busy week for launches! Today, the Sphere Project formally released a new edition of its Humanitarian Charter and Minimum Standards in Humanitarian Response handbook. An English version is available for download (note that this is a zipped pdf file) and also can be purchased via Practical Action (UK) and (eventually) Amazon (US). Arabic, French, Spanish, Russian and German versions of the Handbook are forthcoming.
This document describes what is new in the 2011 edition.
