The consultation on the CHS

The Core Humanitarian Standard on Quality and Accountability (CHS) is the result of a 12-month, three-stage consultation facilitated by HAP International, People In Aid and the Sphere Project, during which many hundreds of individuals and organisations rigorously analysed the content of the CHS and tested it at headquarters and field level.

The CHS is our standard; the tool we will use to show that we build quality processes into our work; to minimise the efforts we put into reporting and upwards accountability and maximise the time we have to build relationships with affected people.
